Dean Carl Y. Ehrhart, Vice President and Dean of the College has 
announced that on Friday, September 11, the faculty of the college 
took action to declare the period of time between October 28 and Nov- 
ember 4 inclusive, a period when no tests would be declared by the 
faculty. This is meant to give students an opportunity both to prepare 
for and participate in the annual homecoming day, Saturday, October 
31, and also to be politically active if they so desire.

ANNVILLE, PA. - On October 8, 1970, the Lebanon Valley College 
piano duo of Veri and Jamanis made its New York City debut in 
the Alice Tully Hall of Lincoln Center at 8:30 p.m., becoming the 
first members of the LVC Department of Music faculty to perform in 
Lincoln Center. 

As fellow scholarship students of the eminent teacher, the late James 
Friskin, at the Juilliard School, they elected to form this combination 
to satisfy a course requirement in ensemble work. 

During the summer of 1969, the Jamanis' studied in Fontainebleau, 
France, with Robert and Gaby Casadesus, one of the world's fore- 
most duo-piano teams. For this study they were awarded, through 
competition, the Walter Damrosch Memorial Scholarship in piano, 
as well as faculty grants from Lebanon Valley College. 

ANNVILLE, PA. - The paintings of Melvin 0. Behm, Meyerstown, 
will be on display in Lebanon Valley College's Carnegie Lounge from 
October 1-20. 

A member of the Lebanon Valley Art Association, Mr. Behm has 
exhibited widely in the Lebanon arelt and has won numerous awards. 
He is employed by the Lebanon Paper Box Manufacturing Company.

BERKELEY - (CPS) - College students accept the use of con- 
frontation tactics and reject the methods used by campus and civil 
authorities to quell student protests, according to a survey released by 
a research team at the Center for Research and Development in 
Higher Education located at the University of California at Berkeley. 

A survey of 1452 college seniors was conducted on ten demo- 
graphically selected state and private campuses, in which most of the 
students were white middle class men and women with above average 
academic records who graduated last spring and summer. 

Only one percent conclude that confrontation was unnecessary, 
nineteen percent supported only some form of peaceful petitioning," 
fifty-two percent felt that "non-violent mass protest is the only feasible 
way to persuade officials to respect the will of the people." Nineteen 
percent answered that the "use of disruptive tactics and the distruc- 
tion of property is often necessary to change the status quo," and nine- 
teen percent stated that "although some may get badly hurt, actual 
Physical confrontation and violence must at times be resorted to in 
order to affect social change." 

WASHINGTON, D. C. - The National Research Council has been 
c alled upon again to advise the National Science Foundation in the 
Section of candidates' for the Foundation's program of graduate and 
re gular postdoctoral fellowships. Awards are to be announced on 
^arch 15, 1971. 

Postdoctoral and graduate fellowships will be awarded for study 
111 the mathematical, physical, medical, biological, engineering, and 
Cer tain social sciences, and in the history and/or philosophy of science, 
^plication may be made by college seniors, graduate students work- 
ln 8 in a degree program, and individuals wishing to do postdoctoral 
w °rk. AH applicants must be citizens of the United States and will be 
Jud ged solely on the basis of ability. 

Applicants for the graduate awards will be required to take the 
Graduate Record Examinations designed to test scientific aptitude and 
ac hievement. The examinations, administered by the Educational Test-

Thursday and Friday, September 17 
and 18, were the dates set for the 
Governor's Conference on the Environ- 
ment, held at the Community Center 
in Hershey. The 1970 edition of the 
conference was the outgrowth of the 
Governor's Conference on Natural Beau- 
ty held four years ago. This time, how- 
ever, members of the academic commun- 
ity were invited to attend. Four repre- 
sentatives of LVC attended the con- 
ference: Dr. Paul Wolf, Susan Yinger, 
Anne Hickerson, and Louis Mylecraine. 

The theme of the conference, as de- 
signated by Governor Shaeffer, was 
"Total Environmental Education." Four 
parallel panel/discussion sessions were 
held twice on Thursday and once again 
on Friday, investigating the educational 
industrial, governmental, and communi- 
cation aspects of the environmental issue. 

As might be expected from a poli- 
tically initiated conference such as this 
one, heavy emphasis seemed to have 
been placed on the legislative accom- 
plishments of the Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania in environmental control. 
Special mention was made throughout 
the conference of House Bill 2213, now 
in the State Legislature and slated to be 
passed this week, which provides for a 
Department of Environmental Control 
in the state. To be sure, the vast majority 
of delegates to the conference were re- 


presentatives from either government or 
industry. Scientists, and especially life 
scientists, seemed to be extremely lack- 
ing both in delegations and in the panels, 
an apparent contradiction of what one 
would normally expect at a confer- 
ence on the environment. This situation 
may have been all well and good four 
years ago, when concern centered around 
hideous looking junkyards and billboard- 
cluttered highways, but seems rather in- 
adequate now that concern has shifted 
from superficial beautification to basic 

Perhaps the most distressing aspect 
of the conference was the gross unfarn- 
iliarity with the issue that was demon- 
strated by the delegates (and even some 
of the panelists). As a testament to this, 
no provision for the discussion of the 

population explosion was made in the 
formal outlines of the conference. Very 
little was even heard about the subject 
by some expects believed to be the core 
of our environmental crisis, except for a 
few isolated remarks which were made 
from the floor. Apparently what had 
happened was that the Steering Com- 
mittee, as it was formulating the out- 
line of the conference over the course 
of the summer, had considered the im- 
portance of the population crisis to our 
environment, and specifically total en- 
vironmental education, and it was de- 
cided, after lengthy discussion and, of 
course, a vote of the committee, that 
population was of minor importance and 
therefore was not deserving of consider- 
ation by the conference. . . .STRANGE! 
But then again, population and popula- 
tion control seem to be an issue that 
politicians, and especially legislative bod- 
ies, have been assiduously avoiding late- 
ly, in this election year 1970. 

The Governor's Conference on the 
Environment has confirmed the worst 
fears of those who have had doubts as 
to the reliability of the state govern- 
ments in dealing with our environment. 
If the conference accomplished any- 
thing at all in Total Environmental 
Education, it was to vividly demonstrate 
the need for the citizenry of Pennsyl- 
vania to educate itself about our envir- 
onment and to clue the legislators in on 
what it has learned and what it has to

A significant first occurred at the Annual Board of Trustees Re- 
treat held on September 12 at LVC. A "panel composed of four stu- 
dents, the student deans, and moderated by Dean Ehrhart was allotted 
45 minutes on the agenda to express student opinions and ideas on any 
topic it chose. The four students were: Fran Stackow, President of 
the White Hats, David Stein, Junior Class President, Tom Cestare, Sen- 
ate and Senior Class President, and Jane Snyder, Student Council Pre- 
sident. Prepared to begin the discussion with Chapel Policy and branch 
off to Student Government, Academic Policy, and other topics, the 
panel members found themselves immediately embroiled in a rather 
heated and lenghty discussion of Chapel Policy.

What a shock to see a breakfast line 
extending down the steps. Along with 
the long line and the crowded conditions 
of the Dining Hall arises the question of 
when the Student Center will be com- 
pleted. As of this writing the project 
will be finished on schedule and possi- 
bly earlier since construction is now a 
couple of months ahead. The kitchen is 
to be completed in September, the din- 
ing extension in January, and the whole 
complex in early summer. Unfortunately 
the current structure must continue to be 
used for the present. This means a long 
wait to eat and even long lines to re- 
turn dirty dishes. Any complaints should 
be directed to the Dining Hall Commit- 

The Building Committee, according 
to President Sample, will hold its first 
meeting sometime in October to con- 
sider plans that are due to be sub- 
mitted for the furnishings. Of particular 
interest are the game room and the 
large lounge. Expert advice will be 
sought for the more specialized rooms 
such as the auditorium, darkroom, and 
radio station. It is hoped by means of the 
Building Committee students will be able 
to relay their ideas for the Student Cen- 
ter to the Administration. 

The Student Center is only the first 
step in a larger plan for the continued 

development of Lebanon Valley College. 
As envisioned in the President's summer 
statement, the long-range plans will com- 
pletely revitalize the academic services of 
the college. A new women's dormitory 
behind Saylor Hall will replace Keister 
which will be returned to the men. After 
the completion of the new music build- 
ing (on the site of Engle Hall), Kreider 
will be razed to provide room for a new 
science building. The College has also 
made recent purchases of the land a- 
round the athletic field. 

The opening panel statement, that the 
large majority of students were opposed 
to the compulsory aspect of the chapel- 
convocation program drew immediate 
response from the trustees. Approxi- 
mately ten trustees participated in the 
ensuing discussion (most were defending 
compulsory chapel) with the following 
general developments: 
Q. Would students attend non-compul- 
sory chapel programs? At Albright and 
Shenandoah non-compulsory chapel re- 
sulted in dropping the entire program 
because of lack of attendance. 
A: Attendance would depend on the 
nature and quality of the program. 
It would definitely be lower. 
Q: Do students (did you) know of the 
compulsory chapel program before de- 
ciding to come to Lebanon Valley Col- 

A: Students have been told, but do not 
know that there is a compulsory chapel 
program. However, assuming that they 
do know, they generally do not form 
an opinion of the program until in- 
volved in it. There are other factors 
which a prospective student considers 
before deciding on a college. 

Q: How can LVC, with regard to the 
"Aims and Principles of the Institution" 
in the catalog (required reading for all 
prospective freshmen) perpetuate a spir- 
(Continued on Page 4, Col. 3) 

Students returned this fall to face even longer cafeteria lines. Fortunately, 
the planned new addition to the Dining Hall will alleviate this problem.

Student Responsibility He i P For The Cam P^ s > 

Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is to make you 
do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you 
like it or not. -Thomas H. Huxley 

Too frequently the "good" student has been defined as a person 
whose devotion to his studies makes him unlikely to disrupt the 
operational structure of his school, but a really good student 
has to be more than a grind. Possessed of an open, inquiring mind, 
he must be willing to participate actively in the learning process. 
Such a person, believing that the education needed for living in 
his rapidly changing environment can't be obtained through a static 
system, may attempt to modify the system in order to meet what 
he sees to be his needs. This should open the way to greater educa- 
tional benefit, rather than lead to mere disruption of what education 
was already in progress. 

For example, this past spring hundreds of colleges and universities 
across the nation went on strike, and the general result at most of 
them was only suspension of formal classes for a day or two, after 
which the semester was completed. At LVC, through the efforts of 
a handful of concerned students, a day was taken off from classes 
which was given to a day-long seminar on Southeast Asia. 

What could have been wasted time was made into a means of 
greater growth and true education than could have been possible 
in one day of regular classes. 

Whether we attempt to be "good students" or not, the years 
we spend in college will contribute to our growth in maturity and 
knowledge; the degree in which this happens is dependent on the 
individual. The student, not the institution, must be ultimately 
responsible for his own education. 


To the Editor: 

Last year, as a member of RAC, I 
spent most of my time in Chapel, pro- 
testing it's compulsory nature. This year 
I have merely attended Chapel as a mat- 
ter of convenience. However in the three 
chapels I have attended I rediscovered 
something about the program which I 
had overlooked somewhat last year. 

I found that chapel does provide an 
important learning experience which 
many of us can use in our latter roles in 
the world. Several basic things are taught. 

Our chapel is a great lesson in hy- 
pocrisy and deceit. After all it is true 
that while the chapel program is passed 
off to the trustees, alumni and the com- 
munity at large as being a worth-while 
and religiously oriented institution while 
everyone knows that most of the stu- 
dents denounced it last year and a 
great number now use it as a compul- 
sory study or talk session. This is espe- 
cially evident to any who happen to sit 
in the balcony where most people are 
sleeping, talking, reading or playing ra- 
dios. They are having a tremendous 
learning experience. It is evident that a 
majority of the students do not pay at- 
tention yet the administration knowingly 
continues to pass off this weekly hour of 
farce as a genuine learning experience. 

No one can claim that this college 
will not prepare them for the life be- 
cause all the students are required to 
deal with the practice of some basic 
evils in our society - hypocrisy and de- 

There may be good speakers occa- 
sionally, but their talks are reduced to 
a mediocracy by the negative atmos- 

phere in which they must present their 

Robert Weller 

To the Editor: 

At 11:00 each Tuesday morning, a 
phenomenon, which could well be con- 
sidered the "chapel convocation syn- 
drome," creates a most disconcerting 
atmosphere on the Lebanon Valley cam- 
pus. Admidst disrespectful chatter and 
ignored by those students assiduously 
working on studies that should have been 
completed in the dormitory, speakers, 
performers, and musicians find it virtu- 
ally impossible to adequately convey 
anything of value to an audience com- 
posed almost entirely of uncouth pseudo- 
intellectuals. Such behavior is a definite 
affront to the integrity of the college 
and in cases of its manifestation in the 
presence of guest speakers must certain- 
ly prove ignominious to administration, 
faculty and to those with any sense of 
propriety. Because the policy was re- 
alize prior to each student's admission 
and because so many alternative activ- 
ities are offered, there is no excuse for 
blatant incivilities. Yes, there is much 
to be gleamed from a program of this 
type if only students are willing to ap- 
proach it in the proper manner.

Other Half 

by Martin Hauserman 

Imagine that you are head of a 
family of ten (aged 1 - 12) in which 
one parent has fled the household. You 
cannot get a job because you speak only 
Spanish and you do not have a grade 
school certificate. Since you cannot find- 
a job in your city, you cannot afford a 
babysitter. Consequently you go on wel- 
fare, and receive a monthly $250.00 
Aid to Dependent Children check. You 
are about to be evicted from your four 
room, cockroach oozing apartment be- 
cause you have not paid $750.00 in back 
rent. You have used the $150.00 a month 
rent money to fill your family with po- 
tatoes and other starches to keep them 
alive. You have borrowed food and 
money from your relatives and your 
pastor a dozen times. Who can help 

On the Near West Side of Cleveland, 
Ohio the Crisis Center can give you 
emergency food, housing, transportation, 
and counselling until your immediate 
problems are solved. For a long term 
solution to your problem, you will be 
referred to OUTREACH, an agency that 
has taken over many cases that over- 
burdened, paper-bound social workers 
cannot handle. You need not worry a- 
bout queuing at sunrise since the Center 
is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week 
with a Spanish speaking counsellor al- 
ways on call. 

The organization which helped you 
and your fictitious family was the idea 
of several Near West Siders for many 
years. Only in January, 1970 was a pro- 
posal sent to the Cleveland Office of 
Economic Opportunity. By June, the 
proposal had been accepted, funded for 
$32,000 for one year, and a director 
had been selected. Mr. Richard Whelan 
worked with two college students for 
over two months. Operating out of the 
3rd floor of a bank building, they in- 
terviewed potential staff, tried to locate 
a storefront and a vehicle for moving 
people and furniture, acquainted them- 
selves with the neighborhood, and helped 
people with a broad range of problems, 
especially housing. 

Some neighborhood agencies and peo- 
ple were enthusiastic about the Crisis 
Center, others were suspicious that com- 
munity residents did not control all 
operations. Moreover, they felt that this 
was another suburbanite attempt to save 
an area which had been "saved" too 
many times. For the preceding negative 
reasons, hiring took longer than usual: 
the Board of Trustees, of the Near West 
Side Multi-Service Corporation, the OEO 
"franchise" for the area, were reluctant 
to hire anyone they did not consider a 
community resident. Not until August 
17th was a full time staff of three and 
one VISTA hired. Location of a store- 
front also took the entire summer be- 
cause hardly anyone was willing to rent 
a double storefront on a main street for 
$125.00 a month. 

While Mr. Whelan and his two as- 
sistants were establishing the Crisis Cen- 
ter, people found out about its potential 
services. Most calls concerned housing 
for large families. Since freeways and 
urban renewal has taken many large 
houses and apartments, only 50% of 
the requests could be fulfilled. In ad- 
dition the area has a vacancy rate of 
(less than 1%, 90% of the houses are 
at least 40 years old, and the news- 
papers advertise largely for small apart- 





Once again it was an exhilarating 
experience to return to campus and dis- 
cover that despite pollution, poverty, 
war, H. G. Meserschmidt, and civiliza- 
tion, in general there really is a Lebanon 
Valley College. You may have been 
relieved to learn at the Opening Convo- 
cation that we are still one big happy 
family although no mention was made 
of the proverbial great umbrella which 
shields us all. We can only assume that it 
has been stashed away in some Ad 
building closet for the duration of the 
heat wave which is upon us. 

Hey, what's with the new freshman 
class? Have they all been screened by 
the Trustees or has a new requirement 
for admission been a letter of recom- 
mendation from your minister? Perhaps 
they're just waiting to get rid of those 
dinks before letting their hair grow. 
Remember: "You too knew what it 
was like before you got here." 

In an era when legislative lies are 
rampant, it is a comfort to know that 
one campaign promise at least has been 
kept. Mr. Hubscher's proposed skating 
rink has finally materialized in front of 
Mary Green. Note: The imposing shade 

tree nearby is not an oak. Any rumors 
that the circular concrete slab was plant- 
ed by the Religion department as an 
essential contribution to the study of 
Druidic sacrificial rites should be dis- 
pelled immediately. 

Those of you who have been dis- 
gruntled by the quality of the dining 
hall meals need only pay a visit to the 
dishroom to appreciate the aesthetic 
appeal of the "food" as originally served. 
Trash on left hand, kiddies, silverware 
on right and don't stack your trays in 
the middle no matter how late you may 
be for your eight o'clock class. Sure 
there are less work-aid positions avail- 
able under the new system, but think 
of all the unemployed slop collectors 
we're helping. 

BacchanaUian rites? Half-nude fe- 
males cavorting around the sundial at 
midnight? No, only another one of those 
bi-weekly fire drills. Somebody donate 
a match and well see if anything on 
campus actually burns within two min- 
utes -Kreider, Engle, and administrative 
personnel automatically excluded. 


The closing date for the submission of manuscripts by College Students is 


ANY STUDENT attending either junior or senior college is eligible to 
submit his verse. There is no limitation as to form or theme. Shorter 
works are preferred by the Board of Judges, because of space limitations. 
Each poem must be TYPED or PRINTED on a separate sheet, and must 
bear the NAME and HOME ADDRESS of the student, and the COLLEGE 
ADDRESS as well. MANUSCRIPTS should be sent to the 
3210 Selby Avenue Los Angeles, Calif. 90034 

ments, couples and no children or pets. 

The Crisis Center is a bandaid on the 
wound of poverty. However, until a long 
range plan for alleviating such human 
suffering can be implemented, the Center 
can provide a need that "9 to 5" 
agencies cannot fulfill: giving immedi- 
ate help to a poor man's problems.

books presently on loan to students

Chapel Committee 

Chooses Program 

by Marilyn Graves 

The Chapel-Convocation program is 
again offered to students as "an inte- 
grating experience for the development 
of the whole student." Planned are the 
widest variety of programs ever included 
under this program, including Tuesday 
morning worship services, a presentation 
of "A Spoon River Anthology" by the 
Alpha-Omega Players, lectures by nation- 
ally known personalities (as well as in- 
ternationally known) and performances 
in the Great Artist Series in Hershey. All 
Tuesday morning programs (with the ex- 
ception of the College chorus program 
on December 15th at 11:00 am.) have 
been listed on the college calendar. A 
list of evening and special activities was 
distributed to students September 22. 

This is actually Valley's second year 
of operation under a new student govern- 
ment which includes a Chapel-Convoca- 
tion Committee composed of faculty, 
administration, and student representa- 
tives, a total of nine members, whose 
job it is to set up the chapel-convoca- 
tion program. AT this time, Dr. James O. 
Bemesderfer, chairman, Dr. Carl Y. Ehr- 
hart, and Dr. George R. Marquette re- 
Present the Administration on the com- 
mittee, with Dr. Pierce A. Getz, Dr. 
Allan Wolfe, and Dr. L. Elbert Wething- 
ti>n representing the faculty. The stu- 
dent representatives elected last spring 
John Lynch, Jane Snyder, and David 
Shellenburger. This Committee is in turn 
a Part of the Trustees Chapel-Convoca- 
tion Policy Committee, with the admin- 
istrative members acting ex-officio and 
without vote. Members of the trustees 
° n the Committee are Dr. Gerald D. 
^auffman, chairman, Dr. Thomas W. 
^inivan, and Dr. Paul E. Stambach. 

" e trustee committee is ultimately in 
c harge of general and attendance policy. 

The accumulation of 1 2 Chapel-Con- 
v °cation credits each semester is com- 
pulsory, and this compulsory aspect has 
^en a point of controversy in the past. 
? change m attendance policy will be 
Instituted this spring, however. Former- 
^> a student needed an extra credit to 
°« u alify for graduation for each over-cut 
eac h semester. Now, over-cuts for one 
tester may be made up the following 
Semester. Only an over-cut in a student's 
ln al semester or a failure to make-up 
^er-cuts adds credits to a student's re- 
tirements for graduation. 

The Chapel-Convocation Committee 
be meeting regularly throughout the 
ear and students are urged to make 

their suggestions known through their 
representatives. But most of all, students 
are urged to take advantage of oppor- 
tunities offered, whether intellectual, 
cultural, or spiritual. 

A More-Or- Less Neutral Look 

At Freshman Initiation 

by Ben Neideigh 

As is typical with most if not all 
colleges in this country and abroad, 
the beginning of the school term 1970- 
71 has ushered in with it the bane of 
most first-year students' existence, fresh- 
man initiation. Designed to "help all 
new students achieve a fast and con- 
fortable adjustment to college life," 
the initiation events are for the most 
part planned with the entertainment of 
almost everyone at heart (or in the 
general area). 

A college typical of these initiation 
policies is Lebanese Folley College, in 
scenic Anvil, Pennsylvania. At this school 
the fun and games are presided over by 
the beloved White Brats, also known as 
the F. P. B., or Freshman Persecution 
Board. The White Brats see to it that 
all of those lovable stupid frosh wear 
their official dinks, ties, badges, boat 
hats, bunny costumes, bruises, and other 
fun items of apparel for the duration of 
the short seven-month initiation program 
(according to one White Brat, the length 
has been cut since last year). These 
items which cost the frosh a measly 
twenty-five dollars (also cut from last 


Center Director 

The Director of the College Center 
has been appointed in the person of Mr. 
Walter L. Smith. Mr. Smith, a Lebanon 
Valley graduate in 1961, is currently the 
associate director of development and 
director of alumni relations at Bridge- 
water College. Before taking his present 
position in Virginia, Mr. Smith held a 
number of administrative positions at 
Lebanon Valley. The Director holds 
membership in Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, 
Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame, and 
the Annville American Legion among 
others. In addition Mr. Smith is actively 
involved in the United Methodist Church 
both in Virginia and his hometown of 
Pleasantville, New Jersey. 

Mr. Smith, who will be on campus 
in January, will be in charge of all the 
activities held in the Student Center. 
In addition he will act as co-ordinator 
for the various outside groups which 
use the College's facilities. Dr. Sample 
cited his familiarity with the campus and 
his experience in many administrative^ 
positions as the major reasons for his

White Brats, Marcia De Sade, the plans 
for the first three weeks of fun pranks 
for the frosh were discussed. The first 
event, scheduled for Monday, is the 
Freshman Bunny Hop. All frosh will 
be required to wear their bunny cos- 
tumes and will be led at gunpoint (all 
in the spirit of good clean fun, of 
course) to the large lawn in front of the 
Samuel Gompers Memorial Chapel and 
Funeral Parlor and will be hilariously 
forced to "bunny hop" from one end 
of the lawn to the other. "Little do they 
know that the lawn has been hilariously 
planted with war surplus land mines!," 
exclaimed Miss De Sade, who seemed 
totally engrossed in the humor of the 

Incidently, all Freshmen who walk 
on land mines will receive ten demerits 
and be assigned to the gala "Walk of 
the Frosh over a Bed of Hot Coals," 
which is scheduled for next Tuesday. 

"Also scheduled for the next three 
weeks the Freshman Religious Perspec- 
tives and Appreciation period," said Miss 
De Sade. "During this period, all frosh 
will be required to memorize the Octo- 
ber, 1947 issue of Christian Science 
Monitor from cover to cover and re- 
cite it upon request of any White Brat," 
she added. The frosh will be required to 
kneel and recite the assignment while 
kissing the shoes of the interrogating 
White Brat. Upon finishing the recitation 
in the required two minute period, the 
frosh will gleefully rise, offer the Bene-

The initiation would not be com- 
plete, however, without the Freshman- 
Sophomore Tug of War. The White 
Brats usually go out of their way to 
make this event as joyful and spirited as 
possible. The sophomores usually win, 
often as a result of their advanced 
skills and ingenuity. Last year, for ex- 
ample, the members of the Sophomore 
team cleverly disguised a Mack diesel 
truck cab as a member of the L.F.C. 
football squad and used this ruse to 
soundly defeat the frosh. The judges for 
(members of the White Brats staff) were 
very puzzled but undismayed at the 
ease with which the Sophomore team 
dragged their victims across six miles of 
loose gravel before realizing that they 
had won. It would not have mattered, 
however, as the frosh team had been 
disqualified for tying their end of the 
rope to a small tree. This was, of course, 
in direct violation of the basic tenets of 
good sportsmanship. 

Thus, as one can easily see, the 
initiation traditions of Lebanese Folley 
College (affectionately referred to by the 
participants as "atrocities") are in the 
finest sense of the word truly repre- 
sentative of the spirit of unity and 
brotherhood existing on campuses 
throughout the nation between incoming 
students and their older counterparts. 
Practices such as these prove vividly that 
we live in a truly unique and impressive 
society, free of malice and spite. 

In finest White Hat tradition, Sue Roland gives Freshmen "guy" a

It is becoming a tradition here at 
Valley for the incoming freshmen to 
present a show for the upperclassmen; 
perhaps to prove their worthiness to be 
accepted into the college "family". 
Those students who were inflicted with 
suitcase-itis, and oblivious to campus 
life from 1:00 pm Friday until 7:00 pm 
Sunday, missed one of the more enter- 
taining weekend activities. Last Friday 
night the Class of 1974 performed. 
Under the guise of WLVC - TV, 
channel 74, the freshmen presented 
"The Original Mack Truck Amateur 
Hour". The talent introduced included 
skits, musical renditions, monologues, 
and impersonations. In general, a 
light and humorous atmosphere pre- 

One of the highlights of the show 
was a parody of "The Twelve Days of 
Christmas". This act cleverly sum- 
marized all the advice mothers give 
their daughters each year on the first 
day of school. 

Unlike most run-of-the-mill televi- 
sion shows, the commercials on WLVC 
were clever and amusing. At times 
they surpassed the skits in wit. 

There were some technical diffi- 
culties in the show, but even in dark- 
ness the boys in the band played on. 
"The Original Mack Truck Amateur 
Hour" was well done, and the freshmen 
deserve credit for their efforts. Con- 
gratulations and welcome to the Class 
of 1974!

not all of the trustees were against non-

trustees learned a great deal through 
the discussion. Most of the trustees are 
genuinely interested in student pro-

favor of further communication at the

WASHINGTON(CPS) - A total of 840,057 people have died in the 
US-Asian War, not including losses among Southeast Asian civilians 
in Laos and Cambodia according to the current U.S. Department of De- 
fense figures. American lives lost in the Southeast Asian conflict num- 
ber 43,674 "resulting from action from hostile forces," and 8,554 from 
other war-related causes. Saigon government casualties are listed at 
114,544, in addition to 4,096 among American allied forces. The De- 
fense Department claims that the North and the NLF have lost 
671,742 soldiers since the death count began in January, 1961. 

Academic & Administrative . . ♦ 

ANNVILLE, PA. - Four Lebanon Valley College faculty mem- 
bers have been selected to appear in the 1970 edition of OUTSTAND- 

They are Dr. Arthur L. Ford, chairman and associate professor, 
department of English; Dr. Howard A. Neidig, chairman and professor, 
department of chemistry; Dr. Jean O. Love, professor, department of 
psychology; and Dr. Jacob L. Rhodes, chairman and professor, depart- 
ment of physics. 

The Outstanding Educators of America is an annual program de- 
signed to recognize and honor those men and women who have dis- 
tinguished themselves by exceptional service, achievements and lead- 
ership in education. Each year over 5,000 of our country's fore- 
most educators are featured in this national volume. 

Guidelines for selection include an educator's talents in the class- 
room, contributions to research, administrative abilities, and any civic 
and professional recognition previously received. 

ANNVILLE, PA. - Dr. Frederick P. Sample has been notified that 
the College's request for a federal grant to establish a Continuing Edu- 
cation, Community Services Center, has been approved. 

The federal funds, $20,671, will be matched by $11,676 of the 
College's own resources for the purpose of "greater resource utiliza- 
tion in helping solve community problems." 

The director of the Center will be Dr. Robert C. Riley, vice pre- 
sident and controller at the College. He will be assisted by Robert E. 
Harnish, a member of the administrative staff.

Dr. Axthur L. Ford, in doing research 
for his forthcoming full-length critical 
and analytical study of the works of 
Joel Barlow, has subsequently published 
the only complete collection of Joel 
Barlow's poetry and prose. This two- 
volume, 1100-page edition included all 
of the writings that were originally sep- 
arately published during Barlow's life- 
time. Authenticity is an outstanding 
quality of the collection in that it con- 
sists of facsimile reproductions of the 
first editions of all the original publica- 
tions and therefore appears with the old 
colonial print. Dr. Ford, in an introduc- 
tion written by him and his co-editor, 
William K. Bottorff of the University of 
Toledo, credits Yale University, the 
Massachusetts Historical Society, and 
the Library of Congress as having sup- 
plied the original sources. The introduc- 
tion also includes a synopsis of Joel 
Barlow's literary and politcal accom- 

Joel Barlow, having graduated from 
Yale College as class poet in 1778, want- 
ed his life career to be in poetry. How- 
ever, he was to become a pubUsher, 
lawyer, minister, pamphleteer, business- 
man, and diplomat, as well as a poet. 
Although his liberal political and reli- 
gious views caused him much general 
criticism, there were those in England 
and America who recognized his con- 
tribution to establishing a more distinc- 
tively American genre of poetry. 

It is Dr. Ford's original study that 
would give a complete critical analysis 
of Barlow's works. This is being pub- 
lished by the Twayne Publishing Com- 

pany to be released within the year as 
volume 195 in a series on United States 

Dr. Ford is responsible for yet an- 
other publication, this one already hav- 
ing been released. The work will not 
only be available to libraries in book 
form, but will also be distributed as a 
special issue of the Emerson Society 
Quarterly, and thus will have national 
circulation among scholars of nineteenth 
century American Literature. The book 
grew out of Dr. Ford's doctoral disserta- 
tion on Thoreau's poetry. Most literary 
critics being attracted to Thoreau's bril- 

liant prose, have generally neglected his 
verse. But an understanding of the 
themes, imagery and techniques used by 
Thoreau in his poetry, says Dr. Ford, 
contributes significantly to an under- 
standing of his prose. 

Dr. Ford, a Lebanon Valley College 
graduate of 1959, has returned, after 
receiving his Ph.D. in 1964 from Bowling 
Green State University, and become

ANNVILLE, PA. - Dr. George G. Struble, professor-emeritus in the 
department of English, was notified recently of his inclusion in the 
Dictionary of International Biography, published in London. 

Dr. Struble assumes that his inclusion was due to his reading two 
Papers at international meetings. The first paper, entitled "Symbolism 
m the Language of Science," was read at Liege, Belgium- The second 
Paper concerned the international aspects of Henry James and was de- 
•ivered in 1964 in Friebourg, Switzerland. 

Dictionary of International Biography is a firmly-established record 
°f contempory achievement circulating on a very large scale to no few- 
er than 1 24 countries of the world. It enjoys the support and patron- 
a ge of Heads of State and Government, National Librarians, University 
^residents, etc. Biographical inclusion has now become recognized 
throughout the world as a proclamation that the biographee has arrived 
ln his or her particular activity.

Vol. XLVII — No. 2 

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, October 23, 1970 


by Terry Carrilio 

Housemothers are a luxury in two girls' dormitories on Lebanon Valley 
College campus. Mrs. Rohland in Mary Green and Mrs. Ott in Vickroy 
serve as representatives of the older generation and are being supported 
by the school in the hope that some girls will come in to talk to them and 
receive advice. The theory behind housemothers is that they give the 
girls an older person to talk with when problems are too serious or em- 
barrassing to discuss with peers. There are various degrees of success in 
fulfilling this rather broad duty; often the personality of the housemother 
becomes the sole determinant of whether or not she will succeed. It is to 
be expected that a job with no specific duties and one which depends so 

heavily on personality dynamics raises 
many questions and leads to many argu- 
ments, both for and against the tradi- 
tional housemother. 

On one hand, there are the parents, 
especially those of Freshman girls, who 
feel that it is very nice that their 
duaghters have a matronly figure to look 
up to. The housemother can be an im- 
portant influence in the recovery from 



After passage by the Academic Af- 
fairs Committee and the faculty, Presi- 
dent Sample has approved several course 
recommendations initiated by the Reli- 
gion Department. 

Of major importance is the revision 
of the six-hour general requirements in 
Religion. The revision states that the six 
required hours may be chosen from 
among Religion 12 (Introduction to 
Biblical Thought), Religion 13 (Introdu- 
tion to Christian Faith), Religion 22 
(Religion in America), and Religion 42 
(World Religions); however, at least one 
course chosen must be either Religion 1 2 
or Religion 13. 

A second revision states that Religion 
32 (Life and Teachings of Jesus), Reli- 
gion 33 (Christian Ethics), Religion 22 
and Religion 42, if the latter two are not 
counted for the general requirements, 
are accepted as distribution require- 

Thirdly, two. new Religion courses 
were also approved. The first being Reli- 
gion 36 (Christian Tradition and Re- 
form), and the second being Religion 
39 (Ideological Issues in Contemporary 
Secular Authors). 

All of these revisions are to become 
effective for the school year 1971-72. 

"Freshman Trauma," a vague and un- 
easy syndrome which, incidentally, has 
been cured in several men's dormitories 
and in the four housemother-less girls' 
dormitories on campus. On the other 
hand there are girls who do not ever 
speak to the housemother, except in 
those situations requiring courtesy. It is 
this latter group of girls who are placed 
in the position of being either imposed 
upon by a value system which has been 
hanging around so long that it must be 
right, or forced to move in order to ig- 
nore another in the yearly series of 
Valley Traditions. 

The housemothers themselves, of 
course, do have some thoughts concern- 
ing their positions, effectiveness, etc., 
Mrs. Rohland became a housemother be- 
cause she had been a school teacher, and 
felt that "I didn't want to be retired." 
She enjoys the girls and the interaction

Cursing the Darkness 

It is one of the unfortunate facts of life that we have no Great Cruise 
Director waiting for us as we embark upon the ship of life, ready to whisk 
us off to a steady round of volleyball, paddle tennis, or even mental ping- 
pong. Most of the time we have to hunt up our own diversions, or sit 
staring at the wall. Now, there have been complaints that this college is 
barren ground for diversion-hunters, especially those with an inclination 
toward Social Events. This is true but sad. The question is, what are you 
going to do about it? 

The answer, of course-at least, at LVC-is not much. After all, who 
is going to bother sponsoring Events, be they concerts or dances or what- 
ever, if hardly anybody is going to come? That's what happens, you 
know: they have these things and then most of the campus goes home 
for the weekend. Somehow, I don't think we're going to be able to 
break the pattern either. 

What we really need is something that doesn't take half the total en- 
rollment of the school, at the very least, in order to make it any kind of a 
minor success. Something, perhaps, a little more exciting than a panel 
discussion. (Ask yourself, is this something that I really want to attend?) 
Surely there are enough organizations around here that they could handle 
a couple of low-budget operations, no? Is there no Imagination any- 
where? All that's left for us to do otherwise is curse the darkness, and 
for that all we're going to get, and all we Reserve, is a shrug of the 


The Perversion Of Reason 

The evidence is all around us in these 
days of political electioneering - - the 
grab for votes and a key "issue" has led 
the illustrious leaders of this nation to 
seize the nearest and best club with 
which to beat dissidents - - the deadliest 
weapon of all - - reason. 

It is not the same reason we have al- 
ways known, though. The great gift of 
the Greeks, the stuff, the system by 
which we communicate and, supposedly, 
grow, is not of the same genus as the 
newpoliticalized reason. No, the ancient 
reason died long ago in this land, be- 
cause it was too inflexible to be used as 
shifting bedrock for aspiring politicians. 

I have not chosen "campus unrest," 
"law and order," "inflation," or "Indo- 
china" as issues of isolated concern in 
this election year, but each as it is as 
part of a whole that is being reasoned 
to death by a sizable crop of office 
seekers, and more importantly, by suc- 
cessful power brokers and society watch- 

All one has to do is pick up the morn- 
ing's New York Times, the Lebanon pa- 
per, or any one of the weekly news mag- 
azines or political tabloids to understand 
what is happening. From every position 
in the political spectrum comes pro- 
nouncements upon the desirability and 
necessity of the use of reason for the 
solution of the problems facing us. When 
one hears John Mitchell condemn ma- 
rijuana usage in a newly-found reasoned 
tone, a person may feel entitled to re- 
joice at the change in approach. Oh, 
there may be differences in conclusion, 
but one cannot quarrel with logical pres- 
entation, can he? When one hears the 
diminutive Nathan Pusey, late of Har- 
vard University, talk of the need for a 
rejection of radicalism and disruption, 
we hear a reasonable man making a rea- 
sonable plea, (which, given the facts of 
life in this country right now, has lit- 
tle relevance outside of its allusion to a 
grander past in academia.) 

The names go on and on - - the 

roster of reasonable men grows every 
day, as the issue builds for all to latch 
onto. But it is all quite irrelevant - - and 
very, very rotten. Reason - - a prostitute 
ready for all who will pay, a handmaiden 
for special needs, a power surrogate - - 
has now also become a tool of men 
whose common interests meet over some 
need to maintain the status quo. 

Governmental reports abound in com- 
pilations telling of "progress" made in 
desegragation of schools, in cutting of 
costs in the Pentagon, in peace efforts 
around the world. The reports may be 
bereft of substantive innovation - - but 
they are surely reasonable, becouse, af- 
ter all, they are well-worded, and they 
are derisive of "nay-sayers", or people 
the Vice-President refers to as "profes- 
sional pessimists." 

Reason is bludgeoned against the 
heads of radicals - - the people the govern- 
ment mouthpieces call "malcontents." 
It is moved into action, with white pa- 
per, overstuffed leather chairs, and TV 
cameras, for the benefit of those who 
still believe in the goodness of our pur- 
sued policies. But let not any show of 
learning in this setting of respectability 
contradict the official concept of reason, 
or else the spectacle of disavowed ad- 
visement or report will be very embar- 
rasing to all concerned. 

Many are opposed to this perversion 
of reason. They speak out, often quite 
eloquently and in the best tradition of 
worldly concern, against crude applica- 
tions of power that are lacquered by le- 
gitimitizing governmental public rela- 
tions efforts. But these people are so 

attached to their noble concepts of ra- 
tionalizm and intellectual persuasion that 
they brand, as an even greater evil, the 
surge of violent feeling and action that 
has come from the discontented in this 
land. Pity that they are blind to the 
real causes; may they be condemned if 
they see the brutalized source of vio- 
lence in the society - - the governmental 
complex - - and refuse to speak out and

To the Editor: 

I read Miss Kirchhof s letter concern- 
ing the "chapel-convocation syndrome" 
and I would like to ask her to consider 
that maybe she has placed the blame of 
being disrespectful upon the wrong set 
of shoulders. 

I find that forcing anyone into a 
situation of required culture-spiritual 
consumption is being disrespectful to 
that person's intelligence and right of 
free will. 

If one finds respectability in the forc- 
ing of culture upon unwilling recipients 
they are coming close to finding respect- 
ability in the cultural conditioning of 
such honorable institutions as American 
Negro slavery. Which is more sensitive 
anyway-the body or the mind? 

I will continue to participate in "dis- 
respectful chatter" as I can not give any 
respect to any institution which forces 
me to consume what it considers to be 
a proper cultural-spiritual atmosphere. 
I find that many of the speakers are 
antiquated, irrelevant or just generally 

For those of you who dig God and 
this great Christian culture so much that 
you must wallow in it once a week-Cool, 
you dig? As for me, as long as I am 
forced to participate in the weekly 
chapel-convocation farce, I will continue 
to show my contempt in the form of 
hostile "disrespect."

This is a time when truly reasonable 
men and women - - not the Mitchells, 
Nixons, Kennedys, and McGoverns - - 
must realize that their convictions are 
not enough to evoke a truce between 
this nation's leaders and many of our 
alienated citizens. More importantly, 
they must know that mihilism and aim- 
lessness cannot be willed away," nor can 
they be legislated, suppressed, crushed, 
or propagandized into oblivion. 

Do not be deceived by the unctuous

Remember that reason was not good 
enough for them when Vietnam developed 
into something really ugly. Keep in mind 
that the truly precious real reason of 
moral people doesn't stand to win when 
it is pitted against "national pride" or 
the ego of a President who does not 
want to be the first President to preside 
over an American defeat.

This is the first in a series of col- 
umns entitled "Fyresyde Chat" (with all 
due respect to President Roosevelt, of 
course). In it I plan to discuss almost 
anything imaginable, including our soci- 
ety, music, art, literature, politics, hu- 
mor, and life in general. I hope you like 

My copy of Alan Richardson's A 
Preface to Bible Study has just landed 
in the middle of the ping pong table in 
my basement. I've just put Uncle Meat 
by the Mothers of Invention on my ster- 
eo. I have also decided not to write any 
more poetry tonight. I am quite dis- 
gusted. The object of my disgust is the 
high-water bell-bottomed slacks problem 
in America today. 

I'm sure all of you out there in 
reader-land are familiar with the high- 
water bells problem. You must have seen 
a typical offender at least once during 
the past year. He is seventeen, just grad- 
uated from a high-school industrial arts 
course. He had just returned from pump- 
ing high test at Bud's Esso and Grill four 
hours before and now he is all spruced 
up and looking real spiffy (his language, 
not mine) for his steady, a fourteen- 
year old bleached blonde who thinks 
Bobby Sherman is tough. He is taking 
her to a make-out party in a barn out- 
side of town so he has decided to go hog 
wild with his mod clothes. He has on his 
red and white pinstriped shirt with the 
snap in the front to keep the collar to- 
gether, his purple paisley tie, his cran- 
berry sport jacket, and his fake wire- 
rim glasses with no lenses. First you no- 
tice the odor of his Avon Island Lime 
aftershave lotion mixed with the faint 
scent of Stri-dex medicated pads and 
Thera-blem, which he used to cover his 
acne. Then you notice his pants. 

They are the soul of blue, a deep 
royal shade with metallic pinstriping. 
Around his waist is a gold chain belt. The 
pant legs are flared at least ten inches 
but reach only to the tops of his pale 
yellow socks. They flap truimphantly in 
the breeze, keeping the dust off of his 
recently washed tennis shoes. As you 
watch, desperately holding in whatever 
emotions rise within you, he hops into 
his red 1958 Chevrolet convertible, jams 
a Four Seasons tape into his player, 
snuggles himself into the tuck-and-roll 
upholstery and blasts into the sunset in 
a roar of glass-packed splendor, his 
Fabian hair-do blowing in the wind. He 
knows his pant legs won't get wet is it 

What can a style-conscious student 
do to eliminate this problem? The an- 

swer is simple, my friends. Simply buy 
all of the jean bells you can afford, 
making sure that they cover the foot, 
leaving only a toe sticking tentatively 
out from under each leg, and march to 
the high schools, preaching the doc- 
trines of long pant legs, spiritual en- 
lightenment and imported economy 
automobiles, free of angora dice, baby 
shoes, fender skirts, spinners, continen- 
tal kits, hood scoops, and metalflake 
paint jobs. And remember, the kids will 
listen and believe, because we are big 
college students and we know everything. 
We've read Kama Sutra, we've sniffed 
airplane glue and drunk Pagan Pink Rip- 
ple until we've thrown up, and we've 
burned administration buildings nation- 
wide, using our copies of Revolution for 
the Hell of It as bibles of consecrated 
doctrine. Aren't we great? 

I wonder if it is possible to be any- 
thing less than an anarchist and stili get 
along with one's fellow students. I won- 
der if it is acceptable to align oneself 
with the views of Julian Bond or J. Wil- 
liam Fulbright or even Edmund Muskie, 
rather than Abbie Hoffman or Tom Hay- 
den. I wonder if it is permissable to crit- 
icize the Vice President on clear cut state- 
ments of his views rather than on his in- 
flamatory but technically interesting 
rhetoric without falling into emotional- 
istic argument. 

All of this has very little to do with 
bell-bottomed slacks that are too short 
for the wearer, but it proves a point. 
When we burn, scream, and club police 
we assume we are experts on the prob- 
lems against which we are protesting- 
Our judgement, which has not as yet 
garnered most of us so much as a bach- 
elor's degree, instantly subordinates the 
judgement, wisdom, study, and experi- 
ence of others. Many laws are wrong, 
but burning buildings will not change 
them. Study, experience, and rational 
action will. Remember, violence never 
built anything. 

Till later.

Desire May Determine Admission 

by Carol Grove 

Button downs, narrow pants, fresh- 
from-the-barber haircuts, straight glasses. 
Sounds like the Class of '74, huh. There 
may be a logical explanation of the 
quiet, acquiescent nature of the fresh- 
man class. Not necessarily that its mem- 
bers were hand-picked for apathy, as 
some have surmised, but that, if they 
came to LVC because they really wanted 
to, they must have fruit loops on their 

And according to Mr. Carmean one 
of the criteria stressed for admission 
this year was one's desire to attend LVC. 
Indeed, 64% chose Valley because of 
its curriculum, 39% its size, 31% its at- 
mosphere, and 29% its location and dis- 
tance from home. 

Mr. Carmean pointed out that the 
other standards for admission are in- 
cluded in the catalog statement: "Stu- 
dents are admitted to Lebanon Valley 
College on the basis of scholarly achieve- 
ment, intellectual capacity, character, 
personality, and ability to profit by col- 
lege experience." College board scores, 
high school grades and class standing 
are reviewed. Mean college board scores 
of the Class of '74, which class Mr. 
Carmean described as "the best we've 
had so far," are 543.97 for men and 
580.58 for woman. 59% of the men 

and 67.8% of the woman ranked in the 
first fifth of their high school classes. 
The guidance counselor of the high 
school submits a personality rating. Con- 
trollable physical disorders are not limit- 
ing factors. Each prospective student 
was asked if he had ever used drugs, if 
he was using them, and what he would 
do if he found his best friend smoking. 
Mr. Carmean said that no one was re- 
fused on the basis of their answers. 

The student body is so white pro- 
testant that the casual observer (i. e., 
you and I) might blame the admission 
policy. On the contrary, the admissions 
people are trying desperately to, make 
the LVC campus more heterogeneous. 
The area, however, discourages non- 
whites and non-protestants. In fact, 
10 or 15 black students were admitted 
to the Class of '74, some with sub- 
stantial scholarships. None enrolled. On 
the other hand, Catholic students, who 
a few years ago comprised the ninth 
largest religious group at Valley, now 
rank as third. And remember the cata- 
logue cover that was adorned with pic- 
tures of the Chapel windows? High 
school officials in more metropolitan 
areas pointed out that this could dis- 
courage non-Christian students. The co- 
ver of this year's catalog depicts the Ad 
building blurred by autumn leaves.

Veri and Jamanis 
Debut in New York 

Lebanon Valley's duo piano team, 
Veri and Jamanis made their New York 
debut at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Cen- 
ter. They performed a program of ro- 
mantic and contemporary works to a 
fair crowd which included two buses 
from Lebanon Valley. They competed 
for an audience with Leonard Bernstein 
and the Swingle singers at Philharmonic 
Hall, Madame Butterfly with an all-star 
cast at the Metropolitan Opera, Mephis- 
topholes at the New York State Theatre 
(all also within the Lincoln Center com- 
plex) and with Rudolf Serkin, pianist, 
who opened the first of his all-Beethoven 
recitals a few blocks away at Carnegie 
Hall. Jamanis described the heavy activ- 
ity as somewhat of a blessing, since the 
devastatingly caustic critic Harold Schon- 
berg was occupied with Serkin 's concert 
at Carnegie. 

The Jamanis' own review was quite 
favorable. They drew praise for their 
"total rapport in matters of articulation, 
phrasing, and dynamics." They were also 
cited for their "poise and assurance" as 
well as their interpretations which the 
critics found to be "crisp and bright, 
with a refreshing sense of buoyance." 

Two premiers figured in the Veri and 
Jamanis debut. The first was a composi- 
tion by Gregory Kostek, "Music for 
Piano Duo on a Note-row by Alban 
Berg." It was a piece containing some 
interesting musical and pianistic effects 
in a very contemporary idiom. 

The other premier, written especial- 
ly for the Jamanises by Lebanon Valley 
professor Thomas Lanese, was "Prelude 
and Dance." LVC recital-goers will re- 
member the World Premier of this com- 
position at last year's faculty recital by 
the duo. Both compositions were well 
received by the audience.

Over the summer, there have been 
quite a few record releases, and from 
these I" hare -selected 'what I believe to 
be the best albums of the summer. Here 
are my selections, and my reasons be- 
hind these selections; I hope you see a 
few of your new favorites on the list. 

Poco: Poc.6 (Epic Bn 26522). Poco 
is simply the tightest, most innovative 
band in the United States. Their blend 
of influences from traditional ballads to 
hard rock to country-western music is 
unmatched for clarity and purity of 
tone. Their mastery of four part vocal 
harmony makes Crosby, Stills, Nash, and 
Young seem like rank amateurs by com- 
parison. Their playing ability is evidenc- 
ed by the flawless precision of the twin 
leads of Jim Messina on six-string guitar 
and Rusty Young on pedal steel guitar, 
the strong undercurrent of Richie Furray 's 
twelve-string guitar and subtle yet om- 
nipresent drive to Timothy Schmit's bass 
guitar and George Grantham's drums. 
Messina and Furay formerly played 
with Buffalo Springfield, the great band 
which also fathered Crosby, Stills, Nash, 
and Young. Admittedly, C, S, N, & Y 
are getting the lion's share of fame and 
publicity, but that still does not alter the 
fact that Poco has far outdistanced its 
"sister group" in innovation and sheer 
polish. And Poco is fantastic in concert 
as well. I was fortunate enough to see 
them in person on September 26 and 
they were without a doubt the best 
band I have even seen or heard. Period. 

The Band: Stage Fright (Capitol SW- 
425). This, the Band's third album, 
should finally establish the group as one 
of the best groups in the world. The 
Band is so deeply involved in so many 
types of music that the resulting sound 
is much like the visual effect of a college; 
that is, it contains a great number of 
varied musical textures, running the 
gamut from Anglican church music to 
blaring rock to Germanic brass sounds 
to the most soulful soul. When these 
textures blend, the result is an eerie, an- 
tique sound, swirling and ebbing and 
drawing the listener with it into a foggy 
world of Mississippi River gambling men, 
countryside love trysts, medicine shows, 
revival meetings, and corn whiskey. The 
Band captures the essence of the rural, 
"Bible Belt" culture, a musty atmos- 
phere much like the impressions of the 
odors inside the cedar chest, the sight of 
Mark Twain volumes that have gone un- 
touched for fifty years. Garth Hudson's 
organ beckons us into the old-time tent 
church meetings, blending perfectly with 
Richard Mannuel's piano, jazzy yet rever- 
ent, sounding like any Gospel hymnsing 
you have ever heard, only better. Blue-

tent Office has given the go-ahead to a 
competition for commercial trademark 
rights to the peace symbol. Two com- 
panies, the Intercontinent Shoe Corp. of 
New York and LUV, Inc. are bidding 
for exclusive rights to the internationally 
used symbol, the upsidedown "Y" in 
a circle with a bar extending through 
the fork of the "Y". The sign origin- 
ated from the semaphore code for 
Nuclear Disarm amen t-ND-and was first 
used in Britain during the ban-the-bomb 
demonstrations in the late fifties. 
• The sign is now widely used as an 
anti-war protest here and abroad, and 
has been attacked as the "anti-Christ" 
by right-wing fundamentalists. Inter- 
continent Shoe Corp. manufactures lea- 
ther goods with the peace sign in- 
scribed. LUV, Inc., which has already 
officially co-opted "luv" in its corpor- 
ate name, manufactures "boutique-type

tomer," according to a company spokesr 

The trademark would not prohibit 
use of the peace sign, except in a 
brand name for marketable goods. 
(Note - It was reported in the New 
York Times on October 15 th that the 
Intercontinental Shoe Corp. has with- 
drawn its apllication with the Patent 
Office. According to the company pres- 
ident the decision to withdraw was based 
on concern that the symbol should con- 
tinue as a universal symbol of peace.) 

grass, blues, country music, and rock are 
married within Robbie Robertson's gui- 
tar, followed closely by Rick Danko's 
plodding bass, which walks through the 
music like an old, tired bull. Add to this 
Levon Helm's restrained, almost simplis- 
tic drums, evoking remembrances of 
wagon wheels bouncing over corduroy 
roads and cobblestones. The Band's mu- 
sic is the music of nostalgia, of modern 
romaticism in a way. It is a soothing ex- 
perience, and after years of digesting the 
likes of Cream, Iron Butterfly, and The 
Who, that can be quite refreshing. Get 
the album and let it capture you, too. 

Other records in my "Honorable 
Mentions" list include Blood, Sweat, & 
Tears 3 (Columbia KC 30090), the 
Door's Absolutely Live (Elektra EKS 
9002, a double set), Procol Harum's 
Home (A & M SP 4261) and the Moody 
Blue's A Question of Balance (Thresh- 
old THS 3). All are worthy additions to 
anyone's collection. 

There are my selections for the sum- 
mer's best new albums. I am sure you 
have some favorities of your own. 'Till 

Study Correlates 
Mom & Drug Use 

High school students who have seen 
their mothers intoxicated have a sig- 
nificantly greater tendancy to be drug 
users than those who have not. 

This is one of the conclusions reached 
in a survey published in October's 
Science Digest conducted by two Port 
Washington, N. Y., high school stu- 
dents among 1,416 of their classmates. 

The 47 question computer-aided 
survey was made under faculty super- 
vision by James Velleman, 17, and 
Theodore Lawrence, 18, seniors at 
Schreiber High School, Port Washing- 

Specifically, the survey shows that 
44 percent of the students who had 
observed their mothers under the in- 
fluence of liquor had smoked marijuana 
three times or more. 

Of students who had seen at least 
one parent have more that two or 
three drinks at a sitting, 16 per cent 
had used LSD mote than twice. Only 
7 per cent of those who had seen a 
parent drink less than two or three 
drinks at a time used LSD. 

Use of tranquilizers or sleeping pills 
by parents also significantly increased 
the chances that the student was a 
drug user according to the survey. Even 
parental smoking is linked to student 
drug use, although to a lesser degree. 
Parental fighting, separation and divorce, 
on the other hand, showed relatively 
weak correlations. 

The strongest correlation revealed 
by the survey, however, was the use of 
marijuana by 70 per cent of the stu- 
dents whose long-time friends were users 
too. Only 6 per cent of the students 
whose friends were not users smoked 
marijuana. A strong correlation was 
also found between friends' use of 
LSD and the respondent's use. 


On Tuesday, November 27, the Bal- 
mer Showers lectureship will present Dr. 
Krister Stendahl. Dr. Stendahl who is 
currently the Dean of the Harvard Di- 
vinity School received his degrees from 
Uppsala University in his homeland of 
Sweden. Dr. Stendahl will speak ar 11 
in the Chapel and also at 8:00 p.m. on 
Tuesday night and 2:00 p.m. on Wednes- 
day in the Chapel lecture hall.

Valley scores third victory in win over Swarthmore. Looks forward to battle 
with Moravian tomorrow. 

Valley Team Triumphs 
Over Swarthmore, 17-7 

by Robert Puhrer 

The Dutchmen extended their unde- 
feated record to 3-0-1 as they slipped 
pass the Little Quakers by a score of 
17-7 at Swarthmore. 

The Valley struck first on a 3 1 yard 
scoring bomb from Ed Boeckel to tight 
end Tony Calabrese. John Holbrook 
converted the extra point. Swarthmore 
tied it in the third quarter on a 47 yard 
half-back option pass from Mike Chap- 
man to end Art Houptman. The kick by 
Josh Taifer was good to tie the score 
at 7-7. Holbrook put the Dutchmen back 
into the lead on a 27 yard field goal. 
The final Dutchman tally resulted from 
an Ed Boeckel to Ed Thomas anal 
which covered 22 yards. Holbrook kicked 

his second extra point to give him a 
total of 5 points for the day. 

If Valley was to have an off game, 
they picked the right team to have 
it against. Still, the Valley was able to 
win despite having a bad game and this 
is the work of a good football team. 
Again the defense held the opposing team 
to a single touchdown. Jim Nagy, a 
pleasant surprise for the Valley, had an- 
other fine game. Roger Probert and Ed 
Boeckel turned in fine offensive per- 
formances. Probert gained 94 yards in 
13 carries and Boeckel completed 14 
passes in 26 attempts for 176 yards. 

Next week the Valley faces a tough 
Moravian team who should really be 
hungry after being upset this week by 
P. M. C. 


(Continued from Page 1, Col. 5) 

with people which her job entails. When 
asked what the duties of a housemother 
are, Mrs. Rohland said that she under- 
stood her position to be one of counse- 
lor in residence, ie. someone the. girls 
can come and talk to whenever they 
feel the need to do so. Mrs. Oft seems 
to agree upon this "raison d'etre" of 
housemothers. Her motives for becoming 
a housemother differ slightly from Mrs. 
Rohland's; Mrs. Ott was a supervisor for 
the Howard Johnson restaurant chain, 
and an English teacher at a private 
school. She then retired voluntarily in 
order to look for a job as a housemother, 
and before choosing Lebanon Valley 
College as her home, rejected six other 
schools, including Penn State and Muh- 
lenberg. Both Mrs. Rohland and Mrs. Ott 
enjoy the girls and feel that they are 
able to serve as "oil pourers" to smooth 
relations between the administration and 
the girls in their respective dormitories. 

In contrast with the housemother sy- 
stem, there are four girls' dormitories 
which are functioning wiht no house- 
mothers. The counseling and "oil pour- 
ing" responsibilities fall upon the coun- 
selors in these dormitories. In speaking 
to some of these student counselors and 
the students in their dormitories, it has 
become evident that the living situa- 
tions, freshman trauma, etc., have been 
handled satisfactorily. In fact, some of 
the counselors in dorms with no house- 
mothers feel that housemothers are fi- 
gureheads, remnants from the past. It 

has been pointed out that any problems 
the girls may have concerning academic 
or college activities cannot be handled 
properly by the housemothers simply be- 
cause they are so far removed from the 
mainstream of the campus life. Several 
students have pointed out that these 
figureheads remian and are paid to carry 
out functions which no longer exist; no 
one has bothered to do anything about 
them, so they remain accompanied by 
the old, familiar Valley chant, "It's al- 
ways been this way, so why change it?" 

It is abvious that there are some peo- 
ple who feel the need for a mother fi- 
gure nearby, and their needs must not be 
denied arbitrarily. However, there is at 
least one important consideration which 
must be taken into account before rele- 
gating the housemothers to the growing 
list of irrevocable LVC traditions. For 
instance, the Student Government hand- 
book states: "There shall be no dicho- 
tomy between rules for men and rules 
for women and there shall be unprejudic- 
ed equality in all aspects except secur- 
ity measures for women to be deter- 
mined by the women." If this rule were 
to be carried out, all the dorms on cam- 
pus, both male and female, would have 
adult supervisors. Obvious there is an in- 
consistency which must be corrected; 
the role of housemothers and adult su- 
pervisors may have to be re-evaluated, 
and if it is found that such people are 
necessary components of educational 
and social experience, then by all means, 
every dorm on campus must be equiped 
with one.

Mash Mules 

by Robert Fuhrer 

Coach Bill McHenry's Flying Dutch- 
men turned in another fine performance 
this week as they mutilated the Mules of 
Muhlenburg by a score of 21-8. The Val- 
ley defense held the Mules to a single 
touchdown, a one yard run by Bruce 
Weaver in the third quarter. An Ulrich 
to Wheeler pass added a two point con- 
version which concluded the Mules scor- 
ing for the day. 

The Dutchmen scored twice in the 
first quarter on a one yard run by quart- 
erback Ed Boeckel and a two yard 
plunge by senior tailback Roger Probert. 
Kicker John Holbrook added both extra 
points. In the second quarter a Boeckel 
to Teter aerial resulted in a picturesque 
37 yards coring play. Holbrook again 
added the extra point. 

The Valley remains undefeated with 
a 2-0-1 record, and this game is the third 
straight win over the Mules. The staunch 
Valley defense held the Mules to a single 
touchdown in another fine effort. 

Tommy Koons played an outstand- 
ing game as he carried the ball a total of 
21 times for 136 yards. Workhorse 
Roger Probert gained 88 yards in 22 car- 
ries in addition to throwing a number of 
key blocks. Much credit must also be 
given to the offensive line which opened 
many holes in the Muhlenburg line and 
provided good protection for Boechel. 
Boechel did a fine job directing the 
Valley attack, completing 8 of 22 passes 
for 127 yards. 

Next week the Valley travels to 
Swarthmore where they should be heav- 
ily favored to dump the Little Quakers.

Ambassador Cites Racism 
As Most Pressing Issue 

by James Katzaman 

His Excellency John J. Akar, ambassador 
to the United States from Sierra Leone, 
spoke of the "Problems of the Developing 
Countries" in this Tuesday morning's chapel 
convocation service. Mr. Akar described con- 
ditions in many of the new African countries 
in which racism is government policy- Angola, 
Rhodesia, South Africa (the official govern- 
ment name for the program is aprtheid), 
etc., and said that conditions were worse in 
Africa than in Europe and the rest of the 
world, the United States included. In Africa 
there is a genuine fear of Africans and Euro- 
peans towards each other and the mixture 
of the two races in some of the African na- 
tions is forbidden. Interracial marriages in 
these countries are illegal even 
though, as Mr. Akar pointed out, 
"Individuals marry, races do not." 
He concluded that if the situation 
does not improve soon, the time 
will be short to prevent a racial war 
in Africa. 

In language reminiscent of the 
recent Kerner Commission report on 
racial unrest in the United States, 
Mr. Akar questioned whether Africa, 
composed of two civilized races- 
white and colored-would retreat 
into two societies of mutual hatred. 
In the Kerner report, it was pro- 
posed that the United States was 
moving into two societies — separate 
and unequal. Mr. Akar said that 
this trend must be reversed because 
the blacks and the whites have a 
basic need for each other. 

Mr. Akar painted what was an 
admittedly gloomy picture of Afri- 
ca. Education is not free and up 
until now only the rich have bene- 
fitted from it. In what he described 
as a "lamentable and terrifying par- 
adox," he told of the people living 
in poverty while the land beneath 
them was the richest in perhaps the 
whole world. The parliamentary pol- 
itical system of Africa is undergoing 
severe strains in the aspects of 
opposing political parties-the party 
in power has a tendency to elimin- 
ate the opposition completely. He 
said the world economic system 
seems to be directed away from 
Africa, and used the examples of 
coffee quotas to South American 
countries to demonstrate his point. 
He also stated that industrialization 
by machines would not be the 
greatest benefit to his continent's 


huge unemployment problem, al- 
though technical assistance for all 
of Africa was needed in order to 
close the gap between the have and 
have not countries on the con- 

Moving on to other subjects, 
Ambassador Akar mentioned that 
Women's Lib is not a big thing in 
Sierra Leone: they've always had it. 
His country now has its first woman 
cabinetminister and Supreme Court 
Justice, (he challenged the U.S. to 
follow suit). He said Africa would 
probably continue to weather his- 
tory today as it had done in the 
past, and claimed that the rights of 
all individuals were steadily pro- 
gressing. He had also made the point 
earlier in the speech that Africa was 
composed of what were in his 
words, "cultural pluralists," people 
who appreciated both ballet and 
bongo drums in equal degrees. Mr. 
Akar said that Africa had no drug, 
pill, or hippie problem because the 
people do not have to resort to 
such things to dream about their 

He pleaded for the world to 
allow Africa a time of trial and 
error to settle its problems. After 
all, he said, hasn't the United States 
had nearly 200 innings in the game 
of self-government while the African 
nations have only been in for 10? 
"Is it fair to compare the statistics?" 

In closing, Mr. Akar made a 
strange, but seemingly sensible, an- 
alogy in comparing democracy to 
sex. "When it is good, it is very 
good; but when it is bad . . . In 
still pretty good." 

The Alpha Omega Players combine music with the poetic words of Edgar Le e 
Master's "Spoon River Anthology."

National ♦ . . 

WASHINGTON(CPS) - Federal financial aid to 440 students has been 
c ut off because of their involvement in campus disorders to receive stu- 
dent aid funds, according to an official in the Student Financial Aid Di- 
vision of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. 

Forty students lost their funds as a direct result of federal provisions, 
and the remaining 400 through the administration of their individual 

Federal law requires universities to submit an annual report on the 
number of students removed from their financial aid lists. Reports from 
all but 160 of 2,390 colleges and universities show that 86 institutions cut 
off funds to students since June of last year. 

The largest cuts came in small colleges, rather than the larger, more po- 
litically active campuses like Columbia, San Francisco State, Berkely, Mich- 
igan State, Wisconsin, none of which reported any students losing aid. 
Chances are that these schools did not turn their students in, since there 
were major disruptions and actions at those schools in the last year that 
likely involved students on federal aid. 

The information is part of a report on campus violence from an investi- 
gation conducted by Rep. Edith Green (D.— Ore.). The report will not be 
releases because, she said, it would embarrass the president. 

Academic & Administrative . • ♦ 

ANNVILLE, PA. - Dr. Frederick P. Sample has been imformed that 
the College is one of 101 privately supported colleges to receive some 
$631,500 in unrestricted direct grants for 1970. 

Lebanon Valley College's grant is $3,000, a figure based on graduates 
from the College who joined Kodak within five years after graduation and 
are presently completing five years of company employment. 

With one graduate in this category, Lebanon Valley was awarded $750 
for each year of academic work completed by the employee at a privately 
supported, accredited school from which he or she received a bachelor's or 
graduate degree. 

The direct grant is intended to help colleges maintain the facilities and 
curricula for a well-rounded college education. 

Eastman Kodak has contributed a total of $3.3 million under its com- 
plete educational aid program in 1970. Since the early 60's, Kodak's sup- 
port to higher education has totaled almost $30 million.

A reception at 6:30 p.m. in Lynch Memorial Building will start the 
evening's activities. In the receiving line will be Dr. and Mrs. Frederick P. 
Sample and Miss Margaret Walker, Miss Pennsylvania of 1970 and a sopho-

ANNVILLE, PA. - The Wig and Buckle society of Lebanon Valley 
College will present "Lion in Winter," a serious comedy, Friday and Sat- 
urday, October 30-3 1 , at 8:30 pm., in Engle Hall. 

The recipient of the best film award of the New York Film Critics in 
1968, the play portrays the conflict between Henry II, King of England, 
his wife, Eleanor of Acquitaine, and his three sons, Richard, Geoffry, and 
J ohn. 

The role of Henry will be played by James Bowman; Eleanor, by Anne; 
a meson. Richard, Eleanor's favorite son, will be played by Kenneth

On Thursday, October 22, several 
students and a few faculty members 
joined in a rap-in session with Gnossis 
Laski and Ann Campbell of Reach In- 
corporated. The discussion centered a- 
round activities of Youth Information 
Service, a branch of Reach, which is 
based on Second and Forster Streets in 

While the activities of Reach include 
some political action, the main function 
of the organization is to provide an 
outlet for the youth of Harrisburg to 
take problems. YIS has established a 
system of professional references includ- 
ing doctors, lawyers, maternity homes, 
and others to which it refers problems 
it can not handle. YIS can communi- 
cate more readily with youths on prob- 
lems involving drugs, venereal disease, 
pregnancies, and economic aid than can 
many of the established organizations. 
Reach Inc. is funded by some of the 
welfare institutions in Harrisburg and by 
some of the local churches. Its staff, 
which is composed largely of trained 
volunteers, remains on call 24 hours a 

Chapel policy at Lebanon Valley and 
a proposed coffee house were also top- 
ics of discussion. Mr. Laski, who ad- 
mitted facing a similar chapel program 
in college, offered several suggestions 
for changing the program. Most of these

ideas he related have been tried by LV 
students. One of the more interesting 
methods he mentioned was one which 
had been effectively employed at his 
school. He informed the students that a 
kind of "blackmail" of certain trustees 
was threatened, but urged extreme care 
should such a tactic be attempted here. 

The discussion turned to drugs and 
the question of the inconsistency in 

legislature dealing with them. There was 
also a somewhat philosophical discussion 
of God and Jesus Christ. 

At the close of the session interest 
was shown by several students present 
to attempt to establish an organization 
similar to Reach, particularly the YIS 
branch, in Lebanon. Anyone desiring 
more information about Reach may con- 
tact the staff at 717-233-5631. 


Vol. XLVII — No. 3 

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, October 30, 1970 


by Dave Snyder 

In its meeting Monday, October 26, 
the Senate rejected a petition submitted 
on behalf of Mr. Long, the director of 
Alumni Relations, by Tom Corbett which 
requested a two-hour extention of open 
house on Homecoming Day from 10:00 
A.M. to 5:30 P.M. 

While the extension would more eas- 
ily facilitate the visitation by parents and 
alumni to the dormitories, the Senate 
regarded such a grant as a violation of 
the "traditional" definition of open 
house. As many upperclassmen will re- 
call, the Senate's attempted extension 
of open house last year to include hours 
during the week was rejected by the 
executive committee on the grounds of 
the traditional institutional policy. 

Until the Senate's recommendation to 
extend open house hours, based on its 
findings in the recent poll, can be 
reviewed by the executive committee, it 
would appear that the Senate is techni- 
cally powerless to declare any extension. 

Sorry administrators! But even you 
are bounded by the deep tradition of 
Lebanon Valley.

Remember filling out a questionnaire 
on academic cut policy last year? (Or 
maybe you were one of the 500 students 
who didn't bother?) The questionnaire 
results indicated that 408 (of 471) stu- 
dents were in favor of one over-all cut 
policy, 386 of these were in favor of 
either unlimited cuts or unlimited cuts 
excepting test days. The Academic Af- 
fairs Committee decided against one over- 
all policy, leaving it to the departments 
to formulate their own. On Monday, 
October 19, the Student Council met 
with the Academic Affairs Committee 
to discuss their decision and discover the 
rationale behind it. 

It was an interesting meeting, to say 
the least. Among other things, it was ap- 
parent that there is a real split among 
the department chairmen over the ques- 
tion of unlimited cuts, as well as over an 
over-all policy. 

The basic reasoning behind the op- 
position to an over-all policy, besides the 
fact that this would deprive the depart- 
ment or professor of the right to deter- 
mine their course requirements. The two 
chairmen most adamant on this point

hearsal of the play which will be presented Friday and Saturday nights. 

have a policy of unlimited cuts within 
their courses, allowing the other pro- 
fessors within their departments create 
their own policies. 

As for unlimited cuts -the opposi- 
tion rests on a number of facts and as- 
sumptions. One major factor was the de- 
trimental influence an individual's ab- 
sence would have on the education of the 
group. This is especially relevant in such 
credited activities as Orchestra, Band, 
and Public Speaking. (Who benefits from 
speaking to an empty room?) But it also 
has an effect on discussion courses. The 
group loses another viewpoint by an 
individual's absence. 

Of course, the reply to this latter situ- 
ation was, Will a student who doesn't 
want to be in class, is totally indifferent 
to the material, take part in the discus- 
sion? Will he profit by the exchange of 
viewpoints? This point was made by both 
faculty and students. 

Another argument against an unlim- 
ited cut policy was the observation of 
several professors that students who cut 
the most were those who could not af- 
ford to miss class. Their comprehension 
of the material and their grades suffered 

The answer to this was that students 
who cannot assume the responsibility of 
deciding whether to go to class or not, 
students who are not aware that they 
are neglecting their education, perhaps 
losing valuable information, do not be- 
long in college. 

This brought up an answering view- 
point -that the professor has a respon- 
sibility to his class, the professor has the 
right to set course requirements, includ- 
ing attendance policy, in order to ful- 
fill this responsibility. 

However, it was observed, that this 
implies a lack of respect for the stu- 
dent. Theoretically, the student should 
want to attend class, since theoretically, 
he is here for an education. Forcing him 
to attend class should be unnecessary if 
he-realizes his responsibility as a student. 

Other points discussed at meeting in- 
cluded penalties for overcutting, and the 
problem of unimaginative professors read- 
ing from the text to a "captive aud- 

The interaction was certainly worth- 
while and informative to the students, 
although it is doubtful that the present 
policy will be changed.

Know What You Want 

It is passing strange that this far into the semester there has been no 
sign of student activism (or activity, for that matter) on campus, con- 
sidering the restive atmosphere that prevailed all last year after the ger- 
mination of the Moratorium movement. However, the silence these 
days seems to be due more to general frustration than to our old enemy 
student apathy. Not to deprive apathy of credit, but the fact is a lot of 
people are simply tired of beating their heads against the proverbial 
brick wall. There are brick walls everywhere, though, and we should ed- 
ucate ourselves in dealing with them, short of blackmail and bomb 
threats. It behooves us to remember that administrative red tape is so of- 
ten just that, and in order to make any kind of progress we wouldbewise 
to steer clear of the sticky stuff. The trick is to know what you want, 
and to be sure of why you want it; to be aggressive but not belligerent. 
Let's not resign ourselves to defeat this early in the semester. 



Freedom and Independence 

by Candee Falloon 

Once again it is the season when 
leaves begin to fall - and so does the 
football team. But another traditional 
event takes place at this time of year 
which might prompt a murky mist of 
emotion to cloud our eyes. 

HOMECOMING!!!! The epitomy of 
college life rooted into one short week- 
end. What other time of year offers lots 
of beer, brute athletics, beauty and a 
moratorium on tests? For freshmen it 
means Mom, Dad and a decent meal 
and for upperclassmen it means parties. 
But it seems to me we've lost some- 
thing somewhere along the way. 

Years ago, Homecoming was really a 
co-ordinated campus event - a sort of 
Lebanon Valley College Day where de- 
partments, profs, students, parents and 
alumni took an active part in lectures, 
demonstrations, pep rallys etc. Seven 
years ago the day started with the tug 
fo war to determine if the frosh could 
shed their dinks by Thanksgiving (yes - 
I said Thanksgiving - freshmen were a 
heartier breed back then). Before the 

Freedom and Independence are con- 
stantly used terms thrown in our faces 
daily. We get so used to their use and 
misuse we disregard them or regard the 
context as another hack voicing one of 
those patriotic or pseudo-patriotic slurs 
on dissidents. We ignore how extensive- 
ly interfunctional they are, often one 
being mistakenly substituted for the 
other. The term freedom in particular 
has been twisted to the point of absurd- 
ity since I first learned what it was 
supposed to mean. Recent rhetoric has 
completely divorced the two ideas to the 
extent we have ignored independence. 

I have been taught for years that in- 
dependence is freedom in action. I learn- 
ed of relative values of "freedom and 
independence" and adopted them as 
virtues. I've now discovered that these 
are great things to believe in, but I can't 
seriously attempt to function practically 
with them. I can't believe in what I do 
and I can't practice what I truly believe. 

Freedom thea is at best described as 
something belonging to a collective array 
of institutionalized concepts relegated 
to expression only in the ways the insti- 
tutions define the way it shall be recog- 
nized. Freedom cannot exist in this con- 
text. It must be unrestricted: Restric- 
tions stagnate freedom to a cold "me 

America worships its tradition of 
nigged individualism and independence. 
All around however is the mediocrity of 
the same people and their half-assed 
lives, too afraid to assert their individu- 
ality in their heads. Heads sometimes so 
far out they can't be found. 

Personal independence is a matter of 
thinking your own thoughts and know- 
ing why, acting in your own person, and 
accepting others as they are for what 
they are. All the facades, masks, and for- 
malities are unreal, only cold and sterile. 
It is a unique individual that extends be- 
yond, open to the scene around and 
takes it all in. This independence recog- 
nizes the inter-dependence on the neigh- 
bors in this scene and their special quali- 
ties. Far out? Nor really. Deny what you 
are and you deny your own head and 
your existence. Its cool to know thyself, 
but the mindbender is being thyself. It 
turns people on. 

Independence requires individuality. 
Individuality is the functioning of man 
in this world, living and changing as he 
moves amidst and absorbs his experience. 
The institutions within which man 
functions can foster the growth of his 

individual qualities, but it cannot order 
them or be ignorant of any. If it does it 
destroys them. 

Man's freedom, individuality, and 
independence are inter-dependent. Any 
one taken from the other is incomplete. 
Together they form a nature greater 
than the separate entities. Frustration 
or denial of one can result in a social neu- 
rosis that can destroy the fostering body 

I like to feel that I can effectively be 
an individual and practice my independ- 
ence. I want to recognize others' inde- 
pendent qualities. There are however an 
overwhelming number of people who 
when given a chance for recognition pla- 
giarize, criticize or retreat from any de- 
mand for expression of self. They com- 
placently contrive to be squashed into 
the molds that have squelched all of 
their individual, independent qualities. 
The result of a vacuum. Non-Existence. 

game there were such varied offerings 
as the English department illustrating 
the Peterson method of composition, or 
language lab demonstrations. And then 
you could attend a lecture on "The 
Role of the Minister in Dealing With 
Emotional Problems of People Today." 
Oh well - maybe it was really topical 
then, but I can't see why these lectures 
were stopped. 

Not to get off the track or anything, 
but these lectures could have grown into 
panel discussions on contemporary po- 
litical, social or campus issues involving 
the students, their parents, alumni, facul- 
ty and last but not least the admin- 
istration. I mean, I'd really love a dis- 
cussion on Campus Problems and ex- 
tend an invitation to the Board of 
Trustees. Or else I could always have my 
parents hear from the mouths of other 
babes that the food can get pretty bad 
sometimes. But - I've digressed - it was 
just a thought. 

Next came The Football Game - a 
wonderful tradition in its own right 
- but it takes on special significance to- 



To the editor: 

I read Mr. Weller's letter concerning 
die force feeding of culture and religion 
on this campus, and I would like to ask 
him to consider transfer. 

I sympathize with you, Mr. Weller, 
only if you failed to read pages fifty- 
five and fifty-six of the college catalog, 
and if you neglected to do that, it's your 
own fault. The chapel-convocation policy 
is clearly stated on the above pages of 
the catalog, so you should have known 
about it before you decided to come 
here. I'm sure you didn't come here for 
the famous cuisine or the low tuition 
rates or even the wild social life on 
weekends. So exactly what made you 
choose this college? 

Concerning your obsession with re- 
spect, Mr. Weller, it's difficult for even 
us unreal Christian squares to respect 
someone whose uncouth behavior lowers 
a guest speaker's opinion of the college. 
The students here are all aware of the 
maturity levels of certain disrespectful 
chatterers, but let's keep it to ourselves. 
It's no use to let the whole world in on 
it. If, on the other hand, you find it 
difficult to respect this institution, why 
don't you get out right now and transfer 
to an institution which you feel is 
worthy of your respect? 

Many students on this campus seem 
to consider our chapel-convocation pro- 
grams an insult to their independence. 

I'm just one of those "apathetic fresh- 
men with fruit loops on my shirt," but 
it's my humble opinion that none of our 
convocation programs ever hurt anyone. 
They serve to enrich the lives of stu- 
dents who are mature enough to attend 
chapel programs with the proper atti- 
tude. No one can convince me that these 
programs are too religiously oriented. 
Most of them are very informative and 
entertaining. Anyone who missed our 
last program, when our guest speaker 
was the ambassador from Sierra Leone, 
really spited himself. The Brooklyn 
Bridge has never been famous as a 
religious organization. Dr. Wethington's 
evening lecture on "Asian Religions and 
Revolution" was very informative and 
interesting. I've just cited three of this 
year's Programs. I don't see how any of 
the programs we have had can be termed 
"antiquated, irrelevant, or offensive." 

This is a final word to you, Mr. 
Weller, and to your balcony buddies 
from one of those people who "dig 
God and this great Christian culture." 
In attempting to show your contempt 
you merely succeed in showing your 
own ignorance and immaturity.

manifest themselves in blue, white and

The greatest entertainer in the United 
States is not Liberace, Lawrence Welk, 
or John Wayne. He is Dickie Nixon, long 
believed to be President of the United 
States of America but in reality the 
greatest political humorist since Thomas 
Nast. He has the greatest sense of satire 
of anyone hitting the circuits today. 
His irony is magnificent. 

Who else would claim that the good, 
old Republican Party is the cure-all for 
the country's ills? Who else would claim 
that he could, with the aid of congress 
and partisan voters, guarantee for our 
children a "Generation Of Peace?" Who 
else would publicly cannonize Senator 
Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania as one of 
our nation's greatest statesmen? Why, 
none other than Tricky Slicky Dicky 
Nickie ! 

All of these brillant one-liners were 
spewed forth from Our Man as he per- 
formed live in concert at Lancaster 
Municipal Airport outside sunny Neffs- 
ville, Pa., with a cast of thousands in- 
cluding the Hon. Raymonds Shafer and 
Broderick, the aforementioned Sen. 
Scott, Congressmen Edwin "Dutch Ed- 
die" Eshleman, State Senator Clancy 
Manbeck, and the Teddy Kennedy of 
Pennsylvania, the fabulous Marvin "Mar- 
vey-poo" Miller, not to mention the 
Tricky Dickie Marching Military Back-up 
Band, made up of three swinging high- 
school outfits and a color guard that 
would have made any scene trulv a pa- 
triotic pageant, and what must have been 
every state policeman since the Mifflin 

After a plethora of lost kiddies and a 
"God Bless Mom, the Republican Party, 
and a State Income Tax by 1971" dia- 
logue featuring Ray S. and Ray B., and 
fourteen renditions of "Son of a Prea- 
cher Man" by the band, Our Man his- 
self showed up with no less than six, 
count 'em, Six military helecopters with 
Sen. Scott bobbing along behind, Smil- 
ing with all of the charm of a spoon- 
ful of Pepto-Bismol. After shaking hands 

with the color guard, the wives of im- 
portant Republicans and the kiddies of 
the wives of important Republicans, 
and beaming radiantly through a "let's 
give the President a big Pennsylvania 
welcome" intro by self-appointed emcee 
Ray Shafer, Nick Sweetie rambled through 
his speech, inserting the names of Penn- 
sylvania Republicans for the names of 
the New Jersey Republicans that he had 
uttered at Teterboro earlier in the day. 
He said the same things about the "gen- 
eration of peace" thing and how the 
silent majority is cool and how one 
Republican vote is worth any number 
of obscenities from the hippie types and 
how he didn't care that one rowdy shook 
a fist in his face and said "end the war" 
and how he told the crowd that that's 
what our men are over there for and 
everyone seemed to appluad when he 
finished. Nobody noticed the signs say- 
ing "Recall Defective Presidents" or 
"Be Patriotic and Sell Out" and the 
Lancaster Sunday News had lots of spiffy 
copy and photos for the morning i'ssue. 
Then Dickie-poo and Big Hugh got into 
the helecopters and they all roared away 
into the sunset toward Middletown when 
Air Force One was waiting to take the 
boys to Green Bay for another show 
with all of the nifty Wisconsin Impor- 
tant Republicans and another Trickie 
Dickie Military Marching Back-Up Band 
and another tear-jerking color guard and 
more lost kiddies and "Let's give the 
President a big (insert appropriate state) 
welcome" Speeches. Next week he is 
playing the Ed Sullivan Show with Spiro 
and Martha. 

While I was trying to leave the park- 
ing lot I told a Manheim Township cop 
that Nixon was better than George Burns 
or Jonathan Winters. The cop wasn't 
very pleased so I went home and ate a 
peanut-butter sandwich and thought how 
neat it would be to learn a few jokes and 
be elected President as I watched Notre 
Dame beat Missouri on the television set 
while drinking my Sprite, which went 
very well with the peanut-butter sand-

new enthusiasm on campus 


(Continued from Page 2, Col. 5) 

plays at minimal prices are usually over- 
looked by the majority of the student 
body but they can prove useful. I know 
of a student who went to the play 
"Oh Dad, Poor Dad," and found him- 
self seated next to somebody's mother 
who travelled all the way from Bangor, 
Maine, to see her Johnny walk on stage. 
She gushed a lot and eagerly told him 
Johnny's life history -which came in 
very handy when the student had to 
take Pol. Sci. 10 and had no qualms 
over blackmailing the kid out of five 
bucks for the New York Times. 

I think we've also done away with 
the Homecoming Dance -at least we 
should have since no one went to the 
last one. I've heard rumors that there 
really was a neato nifty dance which 
the Homecoming Queen and her atten- 
dants reigned over while the other Valley 
girls were transported to new heights of 
ecstasy as they danced away the hours 
with their special 1:00 A.M. (daylight 
savings time -PLEASE) permissions from 
the big mama herself. But as the same 
hand was hired year after year, we 
turned our thoughts to more sophisti- 
cated pleasures —like . concerts. Well, hope- 
fully a concert if the student council 
c ould scrape up enough money; and of 
course, there's the three-year old tradi- 
hon of powder puff football, where you 
can watch the faculty frolic in the grass 
as they fumble the football and other 
Ported things. It's all good clean fun, 
°f course, and the girls really give the 

guys, a run for their money. 

But I don't know. Besides the im- 
plements, there are vague recollections 
ln my mind of other assorted events 
hich have gone— like Bonfires and pep 
jallies and floats in parades and all that 
y Pe of sentimental garbage. 
You know, there's just something 
out marching around in that torch 
'Sht parade with the putrid torches creat-

Something new at LVC? Yes, as far 
as we on campus are concerned, but if 
you search into Valley's past as do the 
thoughts and memories of our alumni 
on Homecoming Day you H find that 
the cheerleader with sideburns, pants, 
and a bass voice are not at all uncom- 
mon. Uncommon? Indeed, they were 
at one time a tradition adding a dis- 
tinctive flavor to autumn Saturday after- 
noons. And as traditions do here, the 
men on the megaphone gradually dis- 
appeared along with Intercollegiate Ten- 
nis, Sidewalk fair, Debating Team, May 
Day, The Killing, and the floats and 
parades at Homecoming. 

Cheerleading at LVC began with the 
years when most of the games were away 
so a few guys would go to all the games 
to insure that someone has cheering for 
Valley. They were not there to lead 
cheers but rather just to cheer because 
no one else was in the stands. In 1948 
the cheerleader squad was officially 
approved by the administration and 
funds were donated, chiefly by the 
band. In 1949 the official number of 
cheerleaders was set at seven, three 
men and four girls. In 1957 the cheer- 
leaders were rated as one of the most 
active groups on campus. . . on the 
sidelines and off. Then for a reason 
not explained in the yearbooks the 
male cheerleaders ended their contribu- 
tion to the squad in the early sixties. 
The flips, lifts and booming basses were 
a lost tradition for nearly a decade. 

So what happened? Why do we see 
Fred, Bill, Bob and Tony at the games 
this year dressed in blue and white? 
Is there a new enthusiasm on campus? 
There sure is and it came to the tune of 
freshman Tony Leach in September of 
'69. Tony had experience throughout 
high school. Now a sophomore, he ad- 

mits that last year was a "break the 
ice" year in building the new male sec- 
tion of the squad. That was his goal and 
his accomplishment. This year we find 
another sophomore, Bill Hall, and two 
other men, Fred Putnam and Bob Boh- 
lander spurred by freshman enthusiasm, 
joining the squad. The student body 
response, according to brief interviews, 
is favorable in every way to the male 
additions in cheerleading. The true, test 
of this spirit will be of course, as in all 
things, time. The time it will take for 
these four to graduate and others to fill 
their places and so on, continuing a re- 
vived tradition. 

In conversation with the male por- 
tion of the squad the topic of dis- 
cussion always turns to the spirit at 
Valley as can be expected since this is 
their main interest. The most noticeable 
quote from the discussion was, and it 
can be paraphrased a thousand different 
ways: "Nobody really gives a damn!" 
Tony described school spirit as current- 
ly "in a daze." 

As a last bit of curiosity I asked 
them why they had become cheerlea- 
ders. For some cheerleading is used as a 
substitute for varsity sports when they 
are restricted from this activity by cir- 
riculum. For all there was a basic desire 
to become involved in the college in 
some way. Of course after a few weeks 
the physical and emotional activity 
which is attached to cheering has trans- 
formed this slight inclination into a high 
plateauof spirit and enthusiasm directed 
at the Valley. Simply, involvement gen- 
erates a drive to become more involved 
and so on in a perpetual cycle. 

It is to be hoped that the re-vitalized 
cheering squad will generate a new en- 
thusiasm and spirit of participation at 
Valley. Only then can we continue the 
old traditions and perhaps start new

On Saturday. October 31, 1970, the 
famous recording group, The Brooklin 
Bridge, will stage its first performance 
at Lebanon Valley College as part of the 
weekend's gala Homecoming activities. 

The group, which was formed in 
1968, is one of the many new "big 
bands" to spring up recently in the 
wake of such bands as Blood, Sweat, 
and Tears and Chicago. There are eleven 
members, the most famous of whom is 
the lead vocalist, Johnny Maestro. His 
excellent tenor voice has served as the 
propellant behind the group's top forty 
successes, most notable "Welcome Me, 
Love" and "The Worst That Could Hap- 
pen." Backing Maestro are the able 
voices of Fred Ferrara, Les Cauchi, and 
Mike Gregorio, who also double on per- 
cussion instruments. 

Instrumentally, the group features 
Carolyn Wood on organ, Jimmy Rosica 
on bass guitar, Richie Macioce on gui- 
tar, Shelly Davis on electric piano and 
solo trumpet, Joe Ruvio on saxophone, 
and Tom Sullivan on lead saxophone. 
The group's very danceable rhythm is 
supplied by drummer Artie'Cantanzarita. 
Naturally, Miss Wood receives much of 
the attention on stage, but it is well de- 

Unlike the Byrds, who appeared here 
last year, The Brooklin Bridge is geared 
to a largely top-forty oriented sound. 
They have released three albums on 
Buddah Records, the label which also 
features such prominent artists as the 
1910 Fruitgum Company and the 
Kasenitz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus. 
The most successful of the three was the 
first, entitled simply Brooklyn Bridge. 
It featured the aforementioned hits, plus 
"Blessed is the Rain," "Space Odyssey: 

2001 "(which is actually the group's ar- 
rangement of "Thus Sprach Zarathustra" 
by Richard Strauss), and an interesting 
version of the Rascals' hit, "Lonely Too 
Long," featuring an extended organ in- 
troduction styled after "You Keep Me 
Hanging On" by Vanilla Fudge. 

Their newest release is entitled 
Knights in White Satin and features,be- 
side the title song which is an old Moody 
Blues composition, an orchestrated ver- 
sion of "Down by the River" by Neil 
Young, a concert version of "MacArthur 
Park" by Jim Webb, and their unique ar- 
rangement of the Beatles' "Magical Mys- 
tery Tour." 

The forte of the Brooklyn Bridge, 
however, is their interpretation of mod- 
ern soul classics. Much along the lines 
of the late lamented Magnificent Men, 
the group presents as an integral part of 
its show a medley of distinctively blue- 
eyed version of hits by Marvin Gaye, 
James Brown, Otis Redding, and, in a 
more modern vein, Sly and the Family 
Stone and The Temptations. I saw the 
Brooklyn Bridge in concert at Catawba 
Collegdastspring, and their success with 
these numbers immediately captivated 
the audience, despite equipment prob- 
lems which made theirs a difficult even- 
ing. I also was fortunate enough to jam 
with them before the actual concert, 
and I can vouch for their abilities as 
musicians as well as their great person- 
alities. They are a very humble group 
of entertainers, most grateful for the ap- 
preciation they have received from their 
followers and the rock industry. 

As most of you already know, tick- 
ets are on sale for $3.25 and can be 
bought at Marty's Music Store, the Leb- 
anon Plaza Record Shop, at the door, 
or from Student Council.

The Homecoming Candidates (from left to right) are: Jill Greenstein, Tina 
Hunsicker, Bonnie Van Houten, Gail Fox, Wendy Kline, Betty Brown, and Pam 
Speer. The new queen will be crowned Saturday at the game. 


David M. Long, director of alumni relations, has announced a full 
day's activities for Lebanon Valley's annual Homecoming Day starting 
with registration at 9:00 a.m. and following through an alumni get- 
together at The Timbers and a Wig and Buckle production of "Lion in 
Winter" in Engle Hall. 

Interspersed between a chicken barbeque and the evening's schedule 
will be the Homecoming Day grid battle with Franklin and Marshall at 
1:30 p.m.; a cross-country tilt with Drexel at the same time; the crown- 
ing of the 1970 Homecoming Queen by last year's queen, Miss Maggie 
Walker who is currently Miss Pennsylvania; the dedication of the brand 
new E. E. "Hooks" Mylin scoreboard on the athletic field; formal recog- 
nition of the 1961 Flying Dutchmen grid team which brought home the 
Middle Atlantic Conference crown in Coach Bill McHenry's first year at 
the helm; and a reception in Lynch Memorial Building for all those 
honored during the game itself. 

The weekend will actually open with the annual Century Club Dinner 
Friday night at 7:00 p.m. in the College Dining Hall. Some 300 alumni 
and friends of the college are expected to attend the affair which is 
given in honor of all those who have contributed a minimum of $100 to 
the College in the past year. 

And, to round out the schedule, the Student Council has arranged for 
an appearance of the rock group, "The Brooklyn Bridge," for an 8:30 
p.m. engagement in Lynch Memorial Building.

Temple Offers 
Abortion Referral 

La Vie recently received informa- 
tion from Temple University concern- 
ing an Abortion Referral Service for the 
college community. 

After abortion reforms were passed 
in several states, this service was devel- 
oped, at first to aid the Temple com- 
munity, but it was expanded to meet 
the demand from other campuses. 

In New York, abortions are legal upon 
the will of the mother. Before the 12th 
week the cost is from $200 to $350 
and is performed on an outpatient basis. 
After 1 2 weeks, hospitalization is re- 
quired and the cost is from $700 to 
S1000. The ARS is associated with ac- 
credited clinics in New York City. 

They use the vacuum-aspiration me- 
thod which takes only about 10 minutes 
to perform. Care is taken to safe-guard 
the emotional as well as physical health 
of the patient. The whole procedure is 
carefully explained by both an assistant 
and the doctor. A local anesthetic is 
administered and over half the patients 
experience no discomfort. Some may 
feel a little dizzy or tired, afterwards; 
but most patients can walk right out. 

The ARS, a non-profit organization, 
explains the legal procedures which must 
be met in different states to obtain a 
termination of pregnancy. The office 
is staffed by volunteers who are on duty 
day and night for personal consultation. 
The number to call is 1-215-878-5800.

LVC's Ed Thomas and Jim Nagy halt a Moravian advance. Unfortunately, 
the final score was 27-10 in Moravian's favor. 


F & M's football team has improved 
since last year and is led by a defense 
which scored 3 out of 4 touchdowns in 
a major upset of Dickinson two weeks 
ago. F & M's record to date is a 2 and 3 
mark with wins over Ursinus, 17-14, 
and Dickinson, 28-7. Their losses came 
at the hands of Johns Hopkins, 10-21; 
Swarthmore, 12-14; and Carnegie Mel- 
lon, 16-21. F & M's offense is led by a 
fairly good passing game between their 
quaterback and split end, but it appears 
that the keystone to their team is their 

Coach McHenry expects Saturday's 
tilt, which starts at 1:30, to be a tough 
game and one that the Valley must win 
to stay in the race for the M.A.C. crown. 

by Tom Corbett 

When Coach Bill McHenry's team 
takes the field Saturday against Frank- 
lin & Marshall there will be one thought 
running through the players' minds — 
REVENGE. The Blue and White were 
beaten two years ago, in a Homecoming 
game, 19-17 in the last two seconds of 
play by F & M. The Diplomats scored on 
a touchdown pass following several ques- 
tionable penalties called against the 
Dutchmen. Last year the Valley beat 
F & M in Lancaster by a score of 
43-13, but the Blue and White will still 
be out to avenge that Homecoming de- 
feat of 1968.

Jack Iananntuono gained 165 yards 
and scored twice as he led the Grey- 
hounds of Moravian over the Dutchmen 
27-10 on Saturday. 

For the first five minutes of play it 
looked like the Valley was on its way to 
another win but after the start of the 
second half the game became a night- 
mare for the Valley. Early in the first 
quarter Tom Koons caught a 24 yard 
pass from Ed Boeckel. John Holbrook 
kicked the extra point to give the Valley 
a 7-0 lead. Wayne Morish brought the 
Greyhounds to within one point of the 
Valley at half with two field goals. The 
first field goal came in the first quarter 
from 36 yards out. The next kick was 
from 33 yards out in the second quarter. 

At the start of the second half the 
Dutchmen moved within field goal range 
and John Holbrook finished the Valley 
scoring for the day with a 23 yard 3 
pointer. From that point on it was 
Moravian's ball game. Midway thru the

third quarter Iananntuono scored his 
first T.D. on a 15 yard run. Late in the 
4th period with the score 13-10 Mora- 
vian, the Greyhounds broke it open with 
two touchdowns. The first was scored 
by Gary Montell from six yards out, the

second by Iananntuono from a yard out. 

The Valley had some spectacular 
plays on Saturday but not enough to 
win. In the opening drive of the game 
catches by split end Greg Teter and tight 
end Barry Streeter helped to set up the 
only Valley T.D. of the afternoon. In the 
second half the fans were thrilled by 
great run backs, of kicks, by Roger 
Probert and Jeff Rowe. But due to a 
stubborn Moravian defense and costly 
penalties the Blue and White were un- 
able to convert the efforts of Rowe and 
Probert into points on the scoreboard. 

Mike Morrison caught his fourth in- 
terception in the last three games but 
even this, along with a fumble recovery 
by the Valley line, was unable to prevent 
the Greyhounds from their third victory 
in a row over L.V. 

Next weekend the Valley returns 
home for the first time in three weeks. 
This will be the Homecoming game this 
year and F&M will provide the oppo- 
sition. The Dutchmen must win mis 
game to stay in the race for the M.A.C. 




Loses Ties 
1 1 


by Pat Dougherty 

Last year's woman's hockey team 
racked up an impressive 9-2-1 record, 
the best they had achieved in thirty 
years. With this success behind them, the 
1970-71 team now stands one step bet- 
ter —undefeated. Of their 12 game sea- 
son, the team has won 8 games with one 
tie given to Millersville. 

The varsity squad this year is made 
almost entirely of underclassmen with 
only one senior. Anita Meiser, Barb Hall, 
Jan Garber, Patty Kilgour, and Margie 
Wagner have each, as the forward line, 
scored at least one goal. Barb Hall and 
freshman Patty Kilgour, right and left in- 
ners respectively, have consistently push- 
ed in the most goals, with center Jan 
Garber close behind. Chris Becker and 
Marcia Keefer, the scoring half-backs, a- 
long with Lynn Manheim have kept the 
ball moving towards the cage, affording 
the offense many of their opportunities 
to score. Fullbacks Judy Holt and Sarah 
Kuntz, with freshman goalie Cindy Mil- 
ler, have proven a tough defense. 

The J. V. team, composed of many 
newcomers as well as some of last year's 
squad, has improved consistently with 
each game, although the scorebooks 
show no victories. The E-town game 
will, with the spirit seen on this team, 
wind up their season with their best- 
played game. 

The varsity faces, in their last three 
games, two of their toughest opponents. 
The Elizabethtown game at 10 am. on 
Homecoming Day will be played on our 
own field and their final game is away 
at Gettysburg on November 3. With 
their will to win and our support, the 
Lebanon Valley women's hockey team 
will maintain their undefeated status for 
a first in many years of Valley field

BOULDER, COLO.(CPS)-America's entry into Cambodia and the 
Jackson and Kent State shootings produced the most intense reaction on 
colleges and universities with the highest academic admission policies, 
according to a survey by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education. 

The commission survey of 2,551 college and university presidents, 
with 73 percent responding, also concluded that colleges and universities 
in the Northeast showed greater reaction thatn else where. 

The commission said colleges and universities that admit freshmen 
from the top 10 percent of high school classes had more reaction than 
schools with open admission policies. The study made no comment on 
this finding. 

In the most selective schools, there were these reactions: 35% had 
student strikes of one day or longer, 80% had student campaigns to com- 
municate with local residents about the war, 79% had peaceful demon- 
strations and 9% violent demonstrations. 

Schools with open admissions had these reactions: 9% strikes, 33% 
campaigns, 41% peaceful demonstrations and 5% violent demonstrations. 
Some schools were listed in more than one category.

ANNVILLE, PA.-Dr. Frederick P. Sample on October 27 accepted a 
$1300 grant from the Sears-Roebuck Foundation. 

J. W. Lamoreaux, a representative of the Foundation, made the pre- 
sentation of the check, $1000 for unrestricted use and $300 for specific 
use in supplementing the library's book acquistion budget. 

Lebanon Valley is one of 84 privately supported colleges and univer-

ANNVILLE, PA. -The Board of Trustees of Lebanon Valley College 
met Saturday, November 7, in their regular fall session with the major 
item of business the consideration of and action upon the survey report 
submitted by Marts and Lundy, New York fund raising counsel. 

Receiving the report, the Board reaffirmed the priorities as approved 
earlier, and heard a price tag of $9.2 million placed on meeting the urgent 
and future needs of the College. 

An interesting facet of Saturday's meeting was the presence of several 
members of the Student Council and Student Senate invited to attend for 
the purpose of observing the Board in action. In addition, small group 
discussions were held between students and Board members, attempting 
to give the latter first hand information on student opinions and view- 
points on a variety of the major issues of the day. 

Social & Cultural 

ANNVILLE, PA.-An exhibition of paintings and drawings by Ned 
0- Wert, one of the area's outstanding artists, will be opened to the pub- 
lic in Carnegie Lounge, November 1-20. 

Most of his work is abstract, but Wert traces his inspiration for de- 
sign to the forms of nature. His use of color frequently reflects the earthy 
l °nes of the world around him. The exhibit will include paintings in 
Se veral media: acrylics, oil, and watercolor. 

Wert is also active in other areas of art, including stage design for 
Musical comedy, drama, and opera productions in Elizabeth and Lan- 
Ca ster. He was formerly an art instructor in the Elizabethtown Area 
School District, and has spent several summers working as an interior 

ANNVILLE, PA.— For the second straight year, the Flying Dutchmen

There's nothing to do here!!! How 
many times have you said this? If you 
say it on Sunday nights, you deserve 
misplace. Because Sunday nights, thanks 
to the efforts of Robert A. Vogel, is en- 
deavoring to end the suitcase syndrome 
of this school. With nothing to do on 
weekends, many many run home, deci- 
mating the prospects of action for those 
who remain. This process could be revers- 
ed. If there were fun things to do, more 
students would stick around on weekends 
and by their very presence create more 
activity, encouraging more people to stay, 
generating more activity, and so on. 

And the movies on Sunday night are 
a fun thing to do. The films are presented 
in monthly series for education in film 
evolution as well as entertainment. Oct- 
ober featured Science Fiction, November 
Comedy, December Monster Movies, Jan- 
uary Adventure Films, February War 
flicks, March Westerns, April Classics, and 
May Mysteries. Each month begins with 
an "old" film of the genre, usually a 
'30's, and progresses through the war 
years, the post war period, the cinema 
revolution of the early '50's, and con- 

cludes with a flick of recent vintage. Car- 
toons and shorts are shown along with 
each feature. 

Science Fiction month was very suc- 
cessful. The films were good and repre- 
sentative of the technics and emphases 
of their time. Attendance averaged 130 
and increased each week. If the ideal of 
180 is reached and maintained, the Film 
Series will be able to continue sparking 
life on this campus. 

Admission is $.50 and will remain 
that if more and more people keep show- 
ing up. Season tickets allow the subscrib- 
er to save SI. 50. 

There are difficulties, of course, in 
presenting a movie each week. Booking 
problems, for one. Fortunately, only two 
cancellations have been made by the film 
distributors and replacements have been 
found in time. Supplies, advertising and 
typing have caused snags. And the Chapel 
lecture hall is not Radio City. The Stu- 
dent Center, however, boasts a separate 
sound system which will allow a more 
professional presentation next year. Fi- 
nancial backing is a concern, too. Most 
crucial is building a self-perpetuation or- 
ganization which will continue to combat 
the Dead Weekend. 

A special show for pre-Christmas fes- 
tivities is being considered. This too de- 
pends on the response. 

So support the Film Series!!! The 
more successful it is, the more will be 
planned, and who knows? maybe well 
have a real live College-type college.

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, November 20, 1970 


by Jim Katzaman 

Saturday, November 7 a meeting of 
the Board of Trustees was held in the 
chapel lecture room. One of the high- 
lights of the gathering was an informal 
discussion between the various trustees 
and representatives of the student gov- 
ernment who were present as guests. 

The whole group met in the lecture 
hall as the trustees conducted their nor- 
mal business. After various motions had 
been made and passed the time arrived 
for the discussions to begim. Lists were 
distributed that told which group of 
trustees would meet with what student 
groups. In each group there was at least 
one representative of the Student Coun- 
cil and one member of the Student Sen- 
ate. Discussions were to center on the 
issues which had been submitted to the 
entire campus for opinions on the joint 
student council-senate questionaire. The 
most important subjects were the open 
house and chapel policies at the college. 

The object of the discussion groups 
was to convey to the individual members 
of the Board the general student feelings 
about these subjects and to try to pur- 
suade as many members as possible to 
see the student point of view. For all 
this the time alloted was approximately 
three-forths of an hour. 

Since there were seven discussion 
groups and there was only one reporter 
present, it would only be fair to des- 
cribe the actions of one group which 
was observed at close hand. From re- 

ports of other students in other groups, 
it would not be a false assumption to 
say that the attitudes of one group 
were not present in the rest of them. 

Group number 7 consisted of Bob 
Gotwalt representing the Senate, Tom 
Corbett representing the Student Coun- 
cil, and about seven representatives of 
the Board of Trustees. Since all depart- 
ment heads are made ex-officio members 
of the board, Dr. Wethington of the 
religion department was also able to at- 
tend the discussion. 

The students were given free rein to 
select their own topic; open house was 
first. In the college-rride survey, 74.7% 
of those who answered indicated that 
they would be willing to go along with 
at least a limited seven day open house 
policy. The open house policy as it 
stands was explained to the Trustees 
and the discussion began. These were 
some of the main idess expressed. A 
statement by a board member is pre- 
sented first followed by a student an- 

"I can imagine a situation arising in 
which a person locks herself in her 
room with a man and pursues all sorts of 
activities while her roommate is left out- 
side pounding on the door. The one on 
the outside is helpless to take any ac- 
tions to stop them." 

"Such a situation will not arise. All 
persons are provided with room keys 
and even if one has lost or has had taken 
his or her key, the dorm counselor has 
a pass key to gain entrance to all rooms."

Students hold rally outside the President's window in support of the Senate's 
position in the continuing battle over intervisitation. 

"What could you possibly do for 
twenty-four hours on a weekend? Don't 
you know when to go back to your own 

"All week long you spend most of 
the time studying and not having much 
fun at all. A weekend is a time of free- 
dom; of having a good time. A weekend 
is a time to live it up." 

"What would be the reaction of the 
parents of a girl (or girls) who attends a 
college with relatively few interdorm 
visiting restrictions?" 

"There might be a great reaction pos- 
sibly resulting in the parents' refusal of 
permission to allow their daughter to at- 
tend that college. But we're big boys and 
girls now. We've got to start living our 
own lives sometime. A college campus 
should reflect the society that surrounds 
it. It does no good to ignore life's realities 
at a time when getting acquainted with 
them might be beneficial." 

The second topic was chapel atten- 
dance policy. In the survey, 76.69% of 
those answering stated that they would 
attend convocation programs at least 
"sometimes" if the program were not 
compulsory. Again a Trustee speaks 

"This is a church affiliated college. 
This chapel policy has been in effect for 
over 100 years. How could we explain 
to the money-giving churches, especially 
in light of the forthcoming fund-raising 
campaign, that we are going to drop 
our compulsory chapel attendance? You 
knew the policy before you enrolled, 
you in effect signed a contract in which 
you agreed with the program." 

"The chapel policy was not a prime 
factor involving our enrollment. It is al- 
so possible for a contract to be re-nego- 

"In colleges in which such a policy 
was dropped it was found that no mat- 
ter what any survey said, the general 
attendance dropped. When attendance 
is low it is difficult to secure many good 
speakers. It's an embarrasing situation 
for a nationally known speaker to give 
a lecture to only a dozen people." 

"Which is worse, to have no speakers 
at all because of poor attendance, or to 
have a distinguished speaker come and 
be subsequently insulted by the entire 
college through the students' actions of 
doing homework, writing letters, and 
reading newspapers during the lecture, 
as are the common actions in chapel?" 

"The Senate is supposed to enforce 
the social rules: have them punish the 
chapel offenders."

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, November 20, 1970 



Man Challenges Beast 

On Tuesday, November 3, President 
Frederick P. Sample held a "Personal 
Conversation" with the student body as 
part of the Chapel-Convocation Program. 
In his speech the President pointed out 
that all the men who have spoken and 
will speak as part of the program are 
worthwhile and have studied for years. 
I would like to know who decides what 
is worthwhile? I consider myself old 
enough to decide what is worthwhile for 
me. What I believe is pretty firmly estab- 
lished; I doubt whether I could be 
changed by twelve "chapel" programs 
a semester-or that I would want to be. 
One important aspect of college should 
be its voluntary nature. Then there was 
the point about getting to know the 
faculty. I must admit that I was at a 
loss to understand the connection with 
"chapel". (I am using chapel in quotes 
to indicate the whole chapel-convocation 
program.) If the President meant those 
faculty who attend, I'm afraid we are 
limited to a handfull -or perhaps he 
was speaking of the Faculty Lecture? 

The President also spoke of courtesy 
to the speakers. What about courtesy to 

the students? If we are treated like 
children in need of weekly morality les- 
sons, why should we not act according 
to our assigned role? It is unfortunate 
that speakers are subjected to discour- 
teous behavior, but I think it is the 
College's responsibility to explain the 
nature of the program. I'm sure the 
guest speaker would understand the 
noise. I remember a speaker in my 
Freshman year -a minister- who could 
not understand how we, the students, 
allowed compulsory chapel to continue. 
(I don't believe he has been asked back.) 
The program has been improved since 
then and it should be further improved. 

Then came the surprise statement of 
the hour. Dr. Sample announced that for 
the remainder of this semester students 
would be "on their honor" to accumu- 
late twelve attendances. No chapel slips 
will be collected. The first reactions were 
divided. Some celebrated. No more cha- 
pel! Their rationale for deserting their 
"honor" was their original disagreement 
with compulsory "chapel." Others, like 
myself, wondered what all the fuss was 
about because it didn't change the real 


To the Editor: 

I support Mr. Weller. 

Bill Morrison 

To the Editor:

his rhetoric leaves something to be de- 

Eric J. Uberseder 

' To the Editor: 

Miss Honodel could have written the 
ideas expressed in her letter with the 
words — Love it or leave it. There is no 
room for change or dissent here. 

Robert Weller 

To the Editor: 

Well, this is becoming a regular fest 
of chapel convocation letters. Neverthe- 
less I feel a compulsion to put my two 
cents' worth in, so all you people out 
there who are thoroughly sick of the sub- 
ject, do not feel, by any means, that 
this letter need hold your attention. 

In answer to Miss Honodel 's letter, I 
have to disagree with her general atti- 
tude, although I do agree with a few 
things she says. "Love it or leave it" 
seems to be the pivot around which she 
weaves her whole argument. And that 
idea I cannot agree with. 

Sure, we all chose to come to LVC, 
but that doesn't mean that the chapel 
program was the overwhelming reason 
for the decision. LVC does have some 
other merits and qualifications that at- 
tract students. And just because LVC 
was our choice doesn't make LVC per- 
fect. If you really like the college, youll 
want to improve it, not let it stagnate. 

Now, all this does not mean I agree 

with Mr. Weller and his "balcony-bud- 
dies." If someone truly is against com- 
pulsory chapel, he should quietly and in- 
conspicuously read a book or daydream 
or draw squiggles on his chapel program - 
if the speaker just doesn't seem to be 
worth listening to. 

But please, please do not cite the col- 
lege catalog as the ultimate. Believe me, 
both it and the college have changed in 
just a few short years, and the trend will 
most likely continue. 

Ruth Anne Rehrig 

To the Editor: 

To react to Mr. Strong's article - 
Mr. Strong: 

If personal independence is "a matter 
of accepting others for what they are," 
why do you find it so hard to do? You 
condemn all those people you call "med- 
iocre" by saying they live "half-assed 
lives." Aren't you judging them on the 
basis of your own conception of what 
individuality should be? You see, they, 
also, have the freedom as individuals to 
choose how they will live. Who deter- 
mines that people are "squashed into 
molds"-do they or you? 

Being anxious to "practice indepen- 
dence" and to "assert individuality" may 
restrict you to cold constant "not me- 
ism." This would be just as detremental 
to individual growth as "metooism." 

Freedom cannot be "unrestricted." 
No restrictions would result in chaos, be- 
cause one person's freedom would in- 
evitably interfere with the freedom be- 
longing to someone else. 

If "independence requires individual- 
ity," then allow each person to assert his 
independence by deciding for himself 
whether or not he exists in a vacuum. 
Since we are influenced by things around 
us, in spite of ourselves, could we live in 
a vacuum even if we tried?

problem with the system. It meant that 
idealistic jerks like myself are stuck in 
"chapel" while those who can rational- 
ize non-attendance break the back of 
the "chapel" opposition. 

I started analysing the President's 
motives for making this seemingly ex- 
treme statement. As I heard his speech, 
I saw the fight against "chapel" slowly 
grind to a standstill. After last year's 
decision by the Trustee's Committee to 
continue the present policy, the oppo- 
sition had deteriorated into noise-making 
in the balcony. Now the balcony is 
blocked and the mumblers will no long- 
er attend -and with them a goodly 
number of the "godly." So now, to the 
outside observer we will have a sedate, 
if numerically smaller, congregation. 

It seemed to many that this honor 
system was an attempt to placate the 
students and perhaps it is related to the 
unrest over open-house. In other words, 
give the kiddies a pat on the head and 
they will forget about causing trouble. 

Another question is where did the 
President get the power? It seems stu- 
dents must follow the rules right down 
to the quotation marks. It seems that 
student proposals meander through this 
committe and that committee until they 
die quietly in some forgotten corner. 
I wondered what had become of the Cha- 
pel-Convocation Committee to which 
students are always directed with their 
complaints. I made an appointment with 
the Chaplain and was not so surprised 
to find that he had no comment. I was 
referred to the President. 

Basically an honor system is perfer- 
able to the old way. Attendance is then 
between you and, if you will, your 
conscience. I don't, however, think 
anyone should become indignant when 
attendance falls and attack the imma- 
turity of students. I hope the admin- 
istration won't come out with state- 
ments like: "We gave them a chance to 
prove their maturity" and "See, they 
won't do anything unless they are 
watched like children." Because if you 
disagree with the program and can evade 
participation without academic suicide, 
why not? 

So IH go to the three "Chapels" 
I have remaining, but I won't condemn 
those who don't. Ill just say, in a sense, 
111 miss you in the balcony. It will be 
lonely reading the paper all by myself. 



The basic function of the Building 
Committee, five members of which met 
last Tuesday with Dr. Sample, is that of 
an advisory group in non-technical mat- 
ters concerning the Student Center. The 
committee presently is determining how 
to furnish some of the rooms - the 
lounge, TV room, snack bar, music and 
game rooms. Dr. Riley showed the sug- 
gestions for floor plans and furnishings 
of four firms, Gunlocke, Washaw, Gus- 
tafson, and Shay, for the lounge and 
snack bar. Color, duravility, and imagina- 
tion are the criteria on which the com- 
mittee's decision will be based. The group 
was reminded that last year's Building 
Committee decided to select minimal 
furnishings with the idea that additions 
can be made as the need arises. Whether 
there should be booths in the snack bar, 
What to do about the fact that the TV 
lounge is not carpeted, and the matter of 
earphones with the music equipment were 
some of the issues discussed. 

Dr. Sample wished to stifle the rumor 
that the administrative offices will be 
moved to the Student Center. The only 
offices there will be those of the director, 
Mr. Smith, Mr. Landis, the secretary, and 
the receptionist. 

And yes, construction is ahead of 
schedule. The addition to the dining hall 
might be ready by the first of December 
rather than the second semester date 

by Ben Neideigh 

Like most everyone else, my sense 
of the grotesque and an advanced state 
of curiosity prompted me to go to 
Keath Chrysler-Plymouth last night (last 
night meaning Wednesday, October 14, 
realizing of course that October 14 will 
be long gone by the time this article is 
printed) to see the mighty majestic 
(fanfare, please) wrestling bear! It's 
amazing what business people will do 
to attract customers. It is certainly 
unfortunate that Keath Chrysler-Plymouth 
sells cars rather than wrestling bears, 
because judging from the crowd reaction 
and the fearlessness of a few would-be- 
competitors, Wrestling Bears would have 
out-sold Roadrunners, Barracudas, or 
any other manner of automotive beast, 
fish, or fowl last night. 

I vividly remember one incredulous 
lad who dared to defy the strength of 
the Bombastic Bruising Bruin. Obvious- 
ly the sight of a muzzled and de- 
clawed bear tossing neo-greaser motor- 
cycle roughs about the cage like beach- 
balls was not enough to allay his desire, 
either suicidal or valiant, to enter the 
ring of semi-mortal combat against the 
Crusading Cub. Heedless of the beast's 
four hundred and fifty pounds of mus- 
cle and dirty hair, he stood on the 
mat facing his destiny, his Jay Sebring 
Dee-Jay razor cut glistening in the glare 
of the mercury vapor lamp above the 
arena, his blue T-shirt with black racing 
stripes draped, fallen but proud, around 
his astounding one-hundred-and-thirty- 
pound carcass. His girlfriend, most likely 
a red-haired Junior High Valentine's 
Day Dance Queen with lips sweeter 
than Double-Bubble, must have blushed 
wiih pride, or some emotion, similar 
bu^robably diametrically opposed. 

Then, a miracle occurred. The Grue- 
some Grizzly rolled over on its back 
and lay still as a melting ice cream 
sandwich on the mat. Our Hero, his 
animal insticts creating visions of Er- 
nest Hemingway stalking gila monsters 
in darkest New Mexico or bringing back 
fond recollections of ancient "Ramar 
of the Jungle" re-runs, pounced with 
the power of a two-toed sloth on his 
hapless quarry. That was his first mis- 

The sweet smell of impending suc- 
cess and his anti-perspirant driving him 
onward, he grasped the Molesting Mam- 
moth's hairy forelegs and prepared to 
thrust the creature's shoulder blades to 
the mat in the best tradition of phys- 
ical education class. That was his second 

Instantly the Quintessential Koala 
was aroused by forces which man mav 
never comprehend. With one spasmodic 
flexure of its bulbous biceps, the beast 
sent our Diminutive David careening 
through space in a trajectory that would 
have curdled even the blood of Marlin 
Perkins. There was but a baby blue 
blur and then the sickening report of 
flesh meeting earth, sounding much 
like a large insect colliding with the 
windshield of a car traveling at seventy 
miles an hour on the Pennsylvania Turn- 
pike. Shaken, our vanquished gladiator 
picked himself up and scurried away in 
the general direction of a rather scabrous 
1952 Ford, his chosen following him, 
head bowed, whistling a dirge-like "Lou- 
ie, Louie" which floated on the air like 
a cloud of industrial pollution. 

Thus the score remains, Annville- 
Cleona High School Industrial Arts De- 
partment 0, the Wrestling Bear 1. 

After last night's exhibition, per- 

The Committee on Academic Affairs 
passed the following recommendation 
at its meeting of October 12, 1970: 
An incomplete grade must be removed 
within six weeks of the begining of the 
regular semester following unless an ex- 
tention of time has been approved by 
the Assistant Dean of the College. 

haps Stokely-Van Camp would feel just- 
ified to re-christen their famous high, 
energy beverage "Wrestling Bear-Ade." 

Considering, in the end, the fact that 
our Conquering Kodiak was a female 
I am truly amazed that some worthy 
gendeman didn't try to seduce the bear 
into submission. Maybe someone could 
arrange a bout between the bear and 
Ti-Grace Atkinson. Perhaps the promoter 
could stage it in the parking lot of the 
nearest Playtex manufacturing plant. 

Remember the words of that great 
man, Dick Cavett: "There's nothing 
wrong with the Woman's Liberation 
Movement. It just needs a man to 
organize it." 

You may not realize it, but on 
Thursday, October 15, many of you 
ate a Burrito for lunch. Don't you 
just adore Mexican food? 

Till later 

CampuJ Scene 

I haven't had the courage to read 
the college charter, but I believe it says 
something about developing a "well- 
rounded Christain student". Firmly en- 
sconced in the small print is the catch 
phrase, "As is now and ever shall be, 
world without end, Amen." This 
charming little saying is emblazoned in 
gold letters on the rainbow which floats 
in the sky over the immediate vicinity 
of our chapel. (See its colors run in the 
rain.) It's printed on the frontispiece of 
the Faculty Handbook, despite the fact 
that some blasphemously continue to 
ignore not only it, but likewise the dedi- 
cation, the table of contents, and 90% 
of the included data. An integral part 
of the ceremony of initiation to The 
Top of L.V.C. is that the contestant 
have "Tradition" rubber-stamped on 
his brow, and go forth marked like 
Cain. (But nobly, and all in our best 

"But just look at the progress!" a 
voice intones. Sure. No more Maypole 
dances. No more sit-down meals. No 
more required skirts and nylons for 
refined young ladies. And even, as 
of present writing, no more Wing Dings. 

Perhaps there will someday be hope 
that well no longer sit stagnating in 
the slime of our own little pond. Per- 
haps there is a magical land where those 
in Power do not continuously equate 
"versatile" with "two-faced". Perhaps 
too, somebody might just realize that 
this isn't really Vacation Bible School 
after all.

Review of New 
College Center 

Mr. Walter L. Smith Jr., College Cen- 
ter Director and Coordinator of Confer- 
ences, was on campus for Homecoming 
Weekend. Mr. Smith is currently serving 
as associate director of alumni relations 
a t Bridgewater College in Virginia. The 
n ew Director, who has previously held a 
number of administrative posts at Leba- 
non Valley since his graduation from here 
in 1961, did not actually apply for the 
position. President Sample remembered 
his service in the past and his desire to 
return in a more suitable capacity. That 
Mr. Smith might like to apply for the 
opening was suggested by a letter from 
President Sample. Mr. Smith's qualifica- 
tions include his range of experience in 
the administration, since his undergrad- 
uate years as a student assistant in the 
Public Relations Department. Also, Mr. 
Smith's close association with this par- 
ticular college for so many years gave 
him an advantage over other applicants. 

Mr. Smith discussed the basic design 
of the College Center as represented by 
the choice of the name. College Center 
was selected rather than Student Union 
because it was felt that although stu- 
dents would be the most important part 
of the Center, it shtmld be a catalyst 
for interaction between all elements of 
the "College family" including faculty, 
administration, alumni and friends who 
have already contributed to the building 
fund. It is hoped that this interaction 
wil be produced in two ways. First, the 
physical consolidation of campus facil- 
ities should tend to draw various ele- 
ments into contact and thus into conver- 
sation. Second, the Center will plan an 
organized program which will involve 
everyone in some aspect of the activities. 

Mr. Smith stressed the need for ac- 
tive participation by the students in the 
College Center program which will en- 
compass the social life of the entire cam- 
pus. The activities will be concentrated 
in the new building but will utilize other 
areas such as the gym when necessary. 
Mr. Smith hopes that this program will 
instill more pride in the students for 
Lebanon Valley and that the Center will 
become the focus for greeting visitors 
and a starting point for tours of the 

Mr. Smith could not give any speci- 
fics on rules for the Center, but said 
that such things as hours will ultimately 
be decided on the basis of use. He, how- 
ever, could see no obstacle to the ex- 
tension of hours if the different areas 
are being used. Mr. Smith also agreed 
that students should be employed as 
much as possible in the Center, includ- 
ing work at the reception desk. He 
pointed out that this will necessitate de- 
dication on the part of the student and 
some knowledge of the College. 

Mr. Smith will also be responsible for 
the coordination of conferences, that is, 
arranging the groups that use the College 
facilities during the summer and add rev- 
enue to the College. 

Honors Program 

There are currently 22 students en- 
rolled in the Freshman Honors Program 
at Lebanon Valley College, according to 
Carl Y. Ehrhart, vice president and 
d ean of the College. 

The Honors Program was established 
ln order to recognize superior achieve- 
me nt, encourage intellectually able stu- 
dents to develop their abilities, and to 
stimulate general interest in the intellec- 
tual concerns of college life. These fresh-' 
m en were invited, to participate in this 
Program before they arrived on campus, 
^e invitation was issued by the Honors 
c °"ncil on the basis of the student's sec- 
ondary school record, recommendations, 
College Board examinations. 

The program at Lebanon Valley is 
double-phased, consisting of courses in 
special honors sections, taken mostly 
during the first two years of college, and 
^dividual work in the student's major 
during his junior and senior years. The 
^dent who completes both phases of 
^ e Program successfully will be gradu- 
ated W i tn College Honors.

Jim Bowman as King Henry impresses a point on his youngest son, John 
played by Robert Moul in teh Homecoming production of "Lion in Winter." 


by Cathy Mason 

The latest dramatic endeavor upon 
our stage was The Lion in Winter by 
James Goldman, performed during 
Homecoming. First performed in New 
York City in 1966, the play has subse- 
quently been made into a movie. This is 
unfortunate for us, because unless one 
has a completely superlative stage pro- 
duction, an amateur performance has a 
tendency to pale before the memory of 
the lush photography and breadth of 
scenery of a movie. It is also difficult 
to banish from one's memory the superb 
acting of Peter OToole and Katherine 
Hepburn. That's a hard act to follow. 

However in some ways our produc- 
tion excelled that of the movie because 
(whether this was the design or not) it 
didn't attempt to make high tragedy 
out of what is essentially a rather light, 
serious comedy. The director of the mo- 
vie made this mistake, and you have 
scenes of towering rage and tragical in- 
tensity between Hepburn as Eleanor and 
OToole as Henry, at the end of which 
Eleanor says things like, "What family 
doesn't have its little ups and downs?" 
John's excremental humor only passes 
because of its almost black comic effect. 
Our production avoided this mistake and 
didn't attempt to make more of the play 
than it is. (though the film version made 
something almost significant of what is 
really a mediocre drama.) But I think it 
is through the actors that this success is 
reached. Some of them seem to have 
apprehended instinctively that to play 
this absolutely straight and seriously 
would be to maul over the thin line 
between tiagedy and farce. The inevit- 
able laughter at some of the lines (most 
memorably John's) thus became laughter 
with the play and not at it. The actors 
almost completely saved the play, and 
except for some roughness due, no 
doubt, to the short time for preparation 
and rehearsal, were a primary factor in 
the measure of success of the produc- 

However, on the score of the overall 
conception of the play, which often falls 
on the director of a production to estab- 
lish, there was unfortunately less success 
in realizing the character of the piece, 
with its lack of character development 
and interaction and its inability to di- 
rect dramatic tension except outwardly 
through its lines. The play exists primar- 
ily in its lines, not its characters'. The 
two most strongly delineated characters, 
Eleanor and Henry, do not "touch at 
any point" in the dramatic handling of 
them. They seem to be two fairly com- 
prehensive worlds which fire clever and 
even scintillating verbal salvos at one a- 
nother and then move away, fundamen- 
tally unchanged by the encounter, if not 
quite unscathed. After each skirmish 
they fly into one another's arms in tear- 
ful reconciliations which become more 

revolting each time as we remember the 
last tearful reconciliation and we realize 
that nothing they have said or done has 
meant anything at all. The other charac- 
ters are even less real or convincing in 
their relations with one another. Some 
amateur psychology is thrown in to take 
care of the others: Richard is the mo- 
ther-dominated homosexual, Geoffrey 
the bitter, neglected middle son, John 
the overprotected, spoiled youngest. 

On the other hand there are the lines, 
some of which are memorable. This is 
the strong point of the play: the clever 
witty, educated, even enlightening ban- 
ter of Goldman himself. The way to play 
such a piece is to present this, its strong- 
est point, in the most advantageous way, 
to bring the individual lines, the surface 
dialogue into relief by, among other 
things, setting a faster pace (an amount 
of dramatic tension is generated by the 
lines "alone). In this production, the slow 
pace suggested a reaching out for some- 
thing that wasn't there or at least wasn't 
•apparent. You should have fun with this 
play, don't take it too seriously. Think 
of each character as a mouthpiece of 
some great lines, make the lines sound 
for all they're worth and instill in them 
as much meaning and significance as 
they will hold. 

All in all this is probably a most 
difficult piece for an amateur to direct. 
Since it is capricious and won't play 
itself, it calls for some very strong and 
sure directing to make sure the correct 
pace and mood is set and that the em- 
phasis is put on the right places. 

Our costumer-in-residence issued her 
usual set of highly competent costumes, 
designed and in large part made by her- 
self, a feat she somehow manages to 
bring off at nearly every stage produc- 
tion in the vicinity. The set production 
performed prodigies with its stone castle

Much to my delight, the Brooklyn 
Bridge staged an excellent concert here 
on Saturday, October 31. I had heard 
them before and, while recognizing their 
abilities and achievements, was at the 
time unimpressed. Their concert here 
was, on the other hand, an excellently 
and tastefully produced event. It showed 
masterfully the prime asset of the band, 
namely its versatility. 

The one-set show, which to most peo- 
ple seemed to be either an abnormally 
long first set or one of the biggest rip- 
offs of the century (it wasn't, as I will 
explain later), was opened with "Nights 
in White Satin" (the proper spelling). 
This number started a bit ragged, but 
once the microphones were mixed pro- 
perly, the feedback experienced early in 
the number disappeared and the polish 
of the band became quite evident. The 
arrangement included horns, which the 
song's writers, the Moody Blues, did not 
use, but the effect was more majestic 
than jazzy, and the song came off very 

After a few of their more familiar 
numbers, the group embarked on a tour 
through their repertoire of new numbers. 
Of these, "Minstrel" was the most im- 
pressive. It featured Tom Sullivan on 
flute and was generally pleasing. The in- 
fluence of "Variations of a Theme by 
Erik Satie", as performed by Blood, 
Sweat, and Tears, was obvious in this 
number, but not insultingly or imitative- 
ly so. The group seemed to hit its stride 
during this number and "Stop Complain- 
ing", which was written by the outstand- 
ing performer of the evening, Shelly Dav- 
is, who played electric piano and occai- 
sional trumpet. This number featured 
Shelly 's mastery of jazz piano stylings 
and proved to be, along with the final 
number of the evening, the high point 
(musically) of the concert. 

I was rather surprised at the excellent 
arrangement of "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" 
that was offered by the group. I hoped 
that they would add organ and an ad- 
ditional guitar to the ending of the num- 
ber, a la Crosby, Stills, and Nash, but it 
was still very pleasing despite the omis- 
sion'. The rather devastating female lead 
guitarist, whose name was not given to 
the paper, either by the Brooklyn Bridge 
themselves or the group's publicists, was 
very good in "Suite" and displayed some 
rather intricate work. 

The rest of the concert was highlight- 
ed by a medley of Led Zeppelin hits 
which was especially well done and the 
final instrumental featuring a drum solo

Linda, guitarist for the Brooklyn Bridge 

by Artie Cantanzarita that was quite rem- 
iniscent of the drum solo from "In-A- 
Gadda-Da-Vida" by Iron Butterfly and 
the wild guitar solo that most of the peo- 
ple there remembered most vividly. The 
guitarist (I just found out that her name 
is Linda) used a special device for that 
solo known as a repeater. The repeater 
is a small tape device featuring a small 
loop of electromagnetic tape which is 

fed, upon the command of the guitarist, 
a segment of the signal traveling from 
the guitar to the amplifier. This segment, 
or any combination of segments, is then 
recorded on the loop and played back 
through the amplifier along with the gui- 
tar signal. This helped greatly to produce 
the rapid, dense tones Linda created 
when she went to her solo. As long as 
she stayed within the root notes of the 
recorded segment or any harmonic there- 
of, the solo remained melodious. It was 
an imaginative solo, and some parts were 
definitely difficult to finger, but the re- 
peater made the intensity of the solo pos- 

Like many of the people there, I was 
very disappointed when the concert end- 
ed after such a short time. Still, you can't 
call it a rip-off on the part of the group. 
They worked long and hard to work up 
the numbers they presented. And more 
importantly, the audience was less than 
responsive to the group. A few times, 
upon prodding from the singers, the aud- 
ience was cajoled into clapping in unison, 
but generally speaking, the audience was 
rather staid and reserved. Rock music is 
body music. Its sheer power is enough 
to send vibrations through the most 
thick-skinned listener. In fact, listener is 
a bad term to apply to someone who is 
with a rock concert. The true result 
should be a total experience, a sensual, 
overwhelming assault on all of the senses. 
Rock is designed to move the listener, 
if not emotionally, then physically. The 
fact that most of the audience sat inert 
through the entire concert was a bit dis- 
gusting. Admittedly, the Brooklyn Bridge 
isn't a great band, but they performed 
excellently on Saturday night and deser- 
ved better reward for their efforts than 
the audience rewarded them. It was 
heartening to see some of the people 
there dancing. It would have been better 
if the gym floor hadn't been covered 
with chairs. Maybe everyone would have 

danced. No, on second thought, that 
would have been asking too much from 
the crowd that was in attendance. 

In summation, the Brooklyn Bridge 
did very well on Saturday. They aren't 
be any means a great band in the mold 
of The Byrds or the New York Rock and 
Roll Ensemble (both of which were past 
performers here), but they gave a very 
good show and were received mildly by 
an unenthusiastic crowd. If I would have 
been performing, I would have left soon- 
er than the band did. Perhaps L.V.C. 
doesn't deserve a first rate band.

Dutchmen Fall To Lions 

by Tom Corbett 

On Saturday Nov. 7th the Flying 
Dutchmen football squad received their 
second loss of the 1970 campaign by 
34-24 score. The opposistion was pro- 
vided by the Lions of Albright, the arch 
rival of the Dutchmen. The Valley has 
been unable to beat the Lions since 1965 
and the hex still continues today. 

The day started out in the Valley's 
favor and for a time it looked as if the 
school would be able to enjoy an extra 
day off at Thanksgiving vacation. The 
first time the Dutchmen got the ball they 
marched down the field under the field 
generalship of Ed Boeckel. The Valley 
was on about the 7 yard line when 
Boeckel scambling in the backfield hit 
Greg Teter with a pass in the end zone 
and it appeared that the Valley was on 
its way. Then the hex started to show 
its affect on the game. The touchdown 
was called back because the Valley had 
an illegal receiver down field. There went 
6 points and the ball was moved 15 yards 
farther back. 

With the ball being held by Teter on 
the 35 yard line soccer style field goal 
kicker John Holbrook set an M.A.C. 
record with his sixth field goal of the 
season. The Valley then led 3-0 as it 
kicked off to the Lions. Late in the drive 
by Albright at the Valley goal linebacker 
Tony Calabrese recovered a Lion fumble 
and the Valley was on the move again. 
After a 24-yard pass from Boeckel to 
Teter, Roger Probert raced around left 
end with a 5 yd. T.D. run. Holbrook 
converted and the score was 10-0 Valley 
at the end of the 1st quarter. 

In the second quarter Albright came 
back to score 21 points against the Blue 
and White. Robin Bender of the Lions 
scored on a 4 yard run making the score 
10-7 in favor of L.V. Then a pass from 
Bryon Salsand to Joe Louth went for 
63 yards and another score which made 
it 14-10 Lions. The Valley came back late 
in the second period with runs by Probert 
and Koons and pass receptions by Teter 
and Streeter to set another score. Boeckel 
faking a pitchout went around left end 
for seven yards and a T.D. Score 17-14 
Valley. Albright came right back and. 
Dennis Izzi scored on a one yard plunge 
to make the score 21-17 at half. 

The VAlley started the third quarter 
with a score and it looked as if the 
second half was going to be like the 
first. Tom Koons scored on a 1 yard 
plunge to give the lead back to the Valley 
24-21. But that was the last score of the 
day for the Blue and White. The rest of 
the day was an exercise in frustreti::: 
for the Valley team with nothing going 
their way. 

Albright's Bender scored again on a 
one yard run and their Jim Swartz 

scored on a 5 yard run. The second 
conversion attempt was no good and the 
score was 34-24 Albright at the end of 
the third quarter. The final quarter saw 
Albright and L.V. unable to dent the goal 
line so that the score at the gun was 
34-24 Albright. 

The loss is possibly a double loss for 
the Valley. L.V.'s record is now 4-2-1 
behind Mulenburg who is 6-1 . This means 
that unless Mulenburg losses come of its 
remaining games the Valley will have 
lost its bid to retain the M.A.C. 
Championship. Also the loss means that 
all Valley students will be back at school 
on Nov. 30th attending classes as usual.

October 31, 1970 the Flying Dutch- 
men of Lebanon Valley posted their 
first shut out, on the gridiron, of the 
1970 season. They defeated the Diplo- 
mats of F & M by a score of 29-0 on a 
dreary, rain-drenched Homecoming Day. 

The 29-0 win avenged a heartbreak- 
ing loss 2 years ago to the Diplomats in 
the 1968 Homecoming game. 

Saturday's game was highlighted by 
the sharp passing of Ed Boeckel, the re- 
ceiving of Greg Teter and Ed Thomas, 
the defensive line work, and lineback 
ers led by Tony Calabrese. 

Ed Boeckel gained 240 yards through 
the air by completing 13 of 22 attempts. 
Roger Probert led the ground attack 
with 55 yards and a touchdown. 

In the second period Roger Probert 
scored for the Dutchmen following a 
fumble recovery by Jeff Thompson on 
the 17 yard line. The extra point was 
converted by John Holbrook and the 
Valley led for good 7-0. Late in the half 
John Holbrook tied a M.A.C. record 
for number of field goals in one season 
when he kicked his 5th field goal to 
make the score Valley 10-F & M 0. 

In the third quater linebacker Jim 
Kiernan intercepted an F & M pass on 
the F & M 43 to set the stage for the 
Valley 's second T.D. Boeckel threw pass- 
es of 11 and 37 yards, the latter being 
a touchdown pass to senior split end, 
Greg Teter. Teter had four receptions 
for 111 yards and was given the Valu- 
able Senior Award by Kappa Lambda 

L.V.'s third touchdown was due to 
a spectacular display of defense by line- 
backer Tony Calabrese. In the fourth 
quater F & M was punting from their 
own 14 yard line when "Sundance" Cal- 
abrese broke through the offensive line 
of F & M, blocked the punt and recov- 
ered it in the end zone for 6 points. 
John Holbrook missed his first extra 
point try after kicking 17 straight con- 
versions. Taht made the score 23-0 L.V. 

The Dutchmen finished the scoring 
for the day on a seven yard pass from 
Boeckel to Ed Thomas. Holbrook missed 
again and the score ended 29-0 Valley.

Praise to the unsung heroes 

by Tom Cestare 

Fifteen seconds left, time for two 
plays. Quarterback Ed Boeckel drops 
back for a pass and after eluding a strong 
rush from the opposing team he lofts 
a bomb to split end Greg Teter who 
makes a sensational one-handed diving 
grab on the seventeen yard line. With 
only a few seconds left on the clodk 
Lebanon Valley's ace place kicker, John 
Holbrook, swiftly and nimbly drills the 
ball through the uprights to win the 
game for the Dutchmen. The heroes: 
quarterback, split end, and place kicker. 
Week after week the unsung heroes-the 
offensive linemen do their job often re- 
ceiving the most criticism and little, if 
any, praise. Few people realize the in- 
dividual challenge that is placed upon 
these guardians of the backfield. 

The didication exemplified by these 
men oft times boggles the imagination. 
For our purpose we shall briefly examine 
the plight of one of our own offensive 
tackles, Bruce Jenkins, When the field 
goal was kicked to win the game, no 
one was thinking how dedicated the Leb- 
anon Valley right tackle was, or how he 
lifted weights every day of the summer 
to improve his strength and quickness, 
no one knows that Bruce attended sum- 
mer session in order to be in a better 
academic standing during the arduoud 
football season, or of the untold hours 
spenton blocking techniquesjnemoriza- 
tion of plays until he beeame like Pav- 
lov's dogs, and the sheer mental prepa-

quarter of the Albright game. 




ration one has to make for Saturday's 
personal struggle with one's opponent 
and with one's pride. 

The questions are often asked "Why 
be an offensive tackle?" "What makes 
it all worthwhile?" Again, individual a- 
chievement and pride is the answer. 
When it is third down and two yards to 
go for the first down, a tackle with the 
pride Bruce has, realizes he will be called 
upon to deliver the key block in order 
to obtain the first down. After the game 
a coach or perhaps even the hero's friend 
might say "nice block on that crucial 
play." This along with the feeling of per- 
sonal accomplishment is often enough 
for these stalwarts. 

in the presence of the thoroughbreds 
galloping on the turf, let us not forget 
the plough horses that earn the bread.

"Such a rule would be very hard to 

"Nobody said it would be easy. Try 
it for a month and see how it works." 

The final subiect covered was the 
restriction of student government by 
institutional policy. In the survey, 46.5% 
of those answering disagreed with placed 
restrictions, 40.8% agreed with govern- 
ment restrictions, aid 10.4% simply 
didn't care. Because of the lack of time, 
the discussion on this subject was more 
brief than the others. In short, the Trus- 
tees expressed the opinion that the gov- 
ernment should be free of restrictions... 
as long as it remained within the institu- 
tional policy. 

In conclusion, the meetings were a 
display of the immovable object meeting 
the irresistable force; neither side would 
budge. But with all the pessimism, there 
is a bright spot. Each side now under- 
stands why it differs with the other. 
From this small step, who knows what 
actions may result. 

Perhaps the mood arising from the 
discussions can best be summed up by 
the statements made by one of the trust- 
ees. He started off the meeting by say- 
ing, "Okay, sell us!" When the meeting 
was terminated, he said, in a completely 
different tone, "At least we have talk-

guardedly optimistic as his Lebanon Val-

after an early cut.

juries I have to feel optimistic because 
of the spirit, team speed, and shooting. 
Also, this is the strongest team, physi- 
cally, here in quite some time," contin- 
ued Gaeckler. 

Gaeckler, now in his second year, 
feels his knowledge of the league and the 
fact that his freshmen are blending well 
into the varsity ranks are also big plus 
factors. In addition, he feels the players 
know what he expects and, in turn, he 
can think more in line with their abili-

The members of the student council 
and senate who met with members of the 
board of trustees on November 7, met 
in Keister Lounge last Thursday to com- 
pare the results of their discussions. All 
seven discussion groups had at least one 
representative at the meeting. 

The general feeling was that, in gen- 
eral, the discussions had a positive effect. 
Misunderstandings on the part of both 
students and trustees were to a great ex- 
tent eliminated. To use a case in point, 
Tom Cestare reported that the trustees 
in his group were very much in agreement 
with the positions that he put forth. 
"Fantastic!" was the description that 
Cestare used to describe the discussion. 
It was reported that when one trustee 
read the part in the Senate Handbook 
that says, "It is the responsibility of the 

Student Senate to establish social rules 
and regulations," his reaction was, "Well, 
the power.'s certainly there. I don't see 
what we can do about it." The rest of the 
group members nodded in agreement. 
Out of the seven groups, five rated their 
discussions with the board members as 
being on the plus side. 

Bob Gotwalt and Dave Snyder gave 
their respective groups negative ratings. 
Bob mentioned the strong attitudes dis- 
played by most of the men in his group 
by giving examples of their reactions to 
proposals of change in the areas of open 
house, compulsary chapel, and student 
government. They were strict construc- 
tionists all the way, seeing no reason to 
change from the old order. Dave, in giv- 
ing his discussion a low rating, pointed 
out a reaction in his group that was not 
prevalent in most of the others when the 
subject of 24 hour open house was

Senate Power 

by Terry Carrilio and Dave Snyder 

Remember open house? It's that thing 
the Senate's been hitting itself on the 
head with for two years. Recently the 
Senate's "specious" use of its delegated 
power was dramatically thwarted by the 
administration via the Executive Com- 
mittee. (Foolish Senators!! Just because 
it's in the Student Senate Handbook 
doesn't mean it's true.) 

But what has really been going on 
since Homecoming weekend is a con- 
tinuation of the perennial battle between 
right and might. It all began when the 
ad hoc Student Government Committee 
eroneously assumed that its actions would 
be executed in a mature and just fashion. 
The Student Senate interpreted the de- 
cision by the ad hoc Student Govern- 
ment Committee, giving it the power to 
change, make, or eliminate rules and to 
operate ". . .within the areas of pre- 
vious student governments," to mean 
that it had the power to deal in the 
same AREAS, but not under the same 
STIPULATIONS, ie., traditions. This is 
substantiated by the unanimous agree- 
ment of that committee that the ability 
to deal in the same areas of former stu- 
dent governments does not preclude 
change. The committee also agreed that 
the Student Senate should not be bound 
by traditional rules and practices in exe- 
cuting its powers. However, it appears 
that Open House must be in a category 
apart from "social areas" since the Exe- 
cutive Committee in two decisions last 
spring decided that this delegated power 
was not sufficient to warrent the Senate's 
"unbecoming behavior" in electing to 
extend Open House hours. 

Returning in September after a fun- 
filled summer in the "real" world, the Se- 
nate idealistically continued its attempt 
to represent the students. A joing Stu- 
dent Council -Student Senate question- 
naire indicated that 74.8% of the 682 
students polled were in favor of dras- 
tically extending Open House hours. At 
that point realizing its responsibility to 

the students, the Senate decided to go 
through "proper channels" again. A 
meeting was set with the Executive Com- 
mittee for November 10 to redefine and 
examine Open House policies. In the 
meantime the Senate was petitioned by 
the Homecoming Committee for an ex- 
tension of Open House from ten o'clock 
on the Saturday morning of Home- 
coming. The petition was at first denied 
because the Senate was still adhering to 
the Executive committee decision of the 
previous spring. It was discovered, how- 
ever, that before the petition was ever 
brought to the Senate, and before the 
student Homecoming committee was 
even formed, a Homecoming calendar 
had been sent to all parents and alumni 
listing the Open House hours at ten 
o'clock. The calendar was also in the 
hands of Dean Marquette, the Senate ad- 
visor, Dr. Frederick P. Sample, chairman 
of the Executive committee, and was a- 
vailable to all interested parties. Because 
this calendar implied that the Senate had 
the power to extend Open House, the 
group decided to re-examine its position. 

The Senate declared a special meet- 
ing for October 28. It was decided that 
the failure of individuals threatened by 
Open House to question the printed 
calendar and the petition before the 
Senate constituted a break with tradi- 
tion and established a new precedent, 
i. e., the Senate had the power to 
change Open House hours beyond those 
dictated by tradition. The following mo- 
tion was passed unanimously. "In light 
of the fact that the administration had 
recognized the power of the Senate to 
extend Open House hours contrary to 
the definition of Open House, that fol- 
lowing this precedent, the Senate de- 
clares Open House from Friday, October 
30, 1970 at 5:00 p.m. until Sunday, 
November 1, 1970 at 12 midnight and 
from 7:00 p.m. to 12:00 midnight every 
night during the week of November 2-5, 
1970." The basis for this decision were: 

.The Annual Christmas Dinner Dance will be the Christmas Dinner 
is Year, due to the past unpopularity of the dance. It will be held on 
lur sday, December 17, hopefully in the new dining hall.

(2) the response to the questionnaires 

(3) the calendar sent out prior to the

own position. The Senate position 
on Open House is stated on pages 
11 and 12 of the handbook. 
(Note that the Senate position 
does not fall under institutional 

(5) the powers delegated under the 
Student Government constitu- 

At this point the question arose as 
to whether or not the students had any 
right to expect the Student Government 
to work on any important issues, or 
whether Student Government was a com- 
plete force. Apparently the latter 
proved true. In a mockery of justice a 
meeting was called with the President of 
the Senate, the Senate advisor, and 
President Sample. Because the Senate's 
decision was unanimous and no one 
member could be expected to Tepresent 
the whole, the entire Senate attended the 
meeting. Dean Marquette's emotional 
appeal was read and the Senate was 
informed that the appeal was made 
solely on the basis of procedure. Follow- 
ing this verbal "spanking," the Senate 
was told that the Executive committee 
would indeed meet on November 10 to 
discuss the "specious" behavior of the 
twelve elected representatives. 

Because of their "specious" behav- 
ior, Senate has become "the campus 
VILLAIN." Obviously the intellect of 
the Senators can not be too high because 
they placed validity on student opinion 
as expressed in the questionaires as 
well as in the powers delegated by the 
Board of Trustees. It is obvious that 
the Senate Handbook does not carry 
the same stamp of divinity as the college 
catalogue. (The students read both be- 
fore they come here, that's why we can 
always be justified in saying "love it or 
leave it!"). Foolish Senators! To think 
the written word stronger that the 
"sacred" unwritten tradition. Slap your 

Since no one has faith in the Senate's 
powers, perhaps the rumor is true that 
Student Government really doesn't exist. 
The Senate does not seem to have power 
over social rules, unless of course they 
have been duly approved by the intelli- 
gentsia. (The Senate has not yet, how- 
ever, been stripped of its power to sit in 
judgment upon serious disciplinary cases 
which could result in expulsion -an over- 
sight to be sure!). Perhaps the Senate has 
been mistaken to think student opinion 
should have any bearing on the rules it 
enforces. The powers that be seem to 
have agreed that rules for rules' sake are 
much nicer than rules with meaning. It 
would appear that these powers also

We Can't Go Back 

A person in a position of leadership or authority, hopefully, feels 
some sense of responsibility towards the people whom his decisions af- 
fect. Of course, there is such a thing as too much of a sense of responsi- 
bility as too little, but it is unusual to find a leader with a compulsive 
sense of obligation to his constituents. More likely, if he feels respon- 
sible at all, it is to a small inner circle of friends or at least associates. 
The unanimity of the Executive Committee on an issue such as the Se- 
nate action on Open House is surprising therefore only if you under- 
estimate the pressure to conform; in any elite group, members may 
tend to feel more of a sense of "responsibility" toward each other than to 
the people who elected them. 

It has apparently been suggested that our Student Government is not 
functioning adequately, and we move toward the end of the two-and-a- 
half year "trial" period, visions are being conjured up of campus-campus 
and sign-outs after seven p.m. (Think now; are you going to be in the 
library all night? If you decide to go shopping in Lebanon be sure to 
come back and sign out first!) But it is unrealistic, to say the least, of the 
Administration to suppose that we can go back. It could simply not be 
done, any more than a parent could tell his adolescent son that since 
the boy has misused his freedom, the rules which applied when he was 
four-years-old will again be put into effect. 

The problem with the Student Government is not that it does not 
function properly, because it has not been allowed to function as it was 
set up on paper. The trial period, in effect, has not yet begun. It is no 
longer a question of asking for the right of self-government, but rather 
of demanding the freedom to use it. 



As a result of a recommendation by 
the Student Affairs Committee and sub- 
sequent approval by the faculty on Nov- 
ember 9, students now have representa- 
tion on the Student Affairs Committee. 
This is a faculty committee, now consis- 
ting of five faculty members and three 
students, which considers all non-aca- 
demic student affairs. For instance? Well, 
the most recent project has been an in- 
vestigation and subsequent change in aca- 
demic probation policy for college ath- 
letics. The following modications were 
made: students on academic probation 
may continue to participate in an activity 
already begun in the previous semester, 
(ex. wrestling), and students placed on 
probation may continue to participate 
in all activities if their cumulative grade 
point average is equal to or above the 
semester grade point average as follows: 
1st semester — 1.25 
2nd semester - 1.50 
3rd semester — 1.50 
4th semester - 1.70 
5th-8th semesters - 1.75 

This committee also took the initia- 
tive in recommending an Ad Hoc Com- 
mittee be formed to study and recom- 
mend policy for the radio station. 

Although many of the functions of 
this committee have been assumed by 
Student Council, student representation 
is desirable for purposes of communica- 
tion with the faculty on non-academic af- 

The three representatives have been 
appointed by Student Council for this 
year. They are Mike Morrison, Marty 
Hauserman, and Dave Snyder. In the 
future they will be elected in the All- 
Campus Elections in the Spring. Nom- 
inees must be from the junior and senior 

To the Editor: 

One of the serious problems in col- 
lege and university life today is the lack 
of attention to the personality needs 
of the students. Suicide is the second 
most common cause of death on the 
campus, topped only by automobile ac- 
cidents; but those who have studied the 
subject believe that half of the latter are 
"concealed suicides"; thus suicide actual- 
ly leads the list. Dr. Howard A. Rusk of 
the New York University Medical Center 
collected estimates that 90,000 students 
each year will threaten suicide, one in 10 
will make the attempt, and that there 
will be 1,000 actual deaths resulting. 
Beyond this, he calculates 'that among 
six million students, "some 600,000 have 
emotional problems for which they need 
professional assistance." The National 
Inslitute of Mental Health finds that 
"the factor of human isolation and with- 
drawl" appears to be critical; and the 
colleges recognize the serious problems 
created by these "loners" and are trying 
to provide help but admit (in hundreds 
of letters to us from deans) that they 
do not have adequate solutions. 

This waste of some of the nation's 
finest young people is intolerable. Since 
for every actual death, nearly a hundred 
have felt so desperate as to threaten it, 
much light could be thrown on the sub- 
ject by learning what factors enables the 
fortunate ones to work out their diffi- 

culties and keep going. 

With the help of a friend who is 
vitally interested in this subject, the 
American Institute of Family Relations 
is carrying out a nation-wide study of 
what is being done and what could and 
should be done. We need to hear from 
as many students and former students 
as possible who have faced such a crisis. 
What pulled them out of it? Was it aid 
furnished by the college? or other com- 
munity organization? or by a friend? 
or religion? or reading? Just how did 
they save themselves? 

We will not publish the names of any 
individuals or schools; the information 
will be handled statistically and anony- 
mously. If you can call the attention of 
your readers to this study and ask for 
volunteers who will write their exper- 
iences to me ("personal") at The Ameri- 
can Institute of Family Relations, 5287 
Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, Cal. 
90027, it may contribute toward saving 
valuable lives. 

We shall certainly be most grateful for 
any help you can give.

brought up. In the rest of the discussions 
the subject was handled forth-rightly 
with regards to the moral aspect. Dave 
said his group's reaction was to handle 
the moral question as if it were a hot po- 
tato. Everyone knew it existed but want- 
ed to have nothing to do with it. When- 
ever the subject was brought up there 
was a funny remark, a few chuckles, and 
a referal to other matters of more impor- 

One conclusion to which most of the 
students agreed was that despite the fact 
that five out of the seven groups gave 
their discussions positive ratings, no 
change of any kind on any institutional 
policy should be expected in the near 
future. Even though some expressed 
much agreement with the student posi- 
tions, everyone realizes that they will 
come under intense pressure from Leba- 
non Valley's money-giving organization 
should there be the mere mention of 
change. The road to modernization will 
be long and bumpy but perhaps the stu- 
dents have cleared the first obstacle. 

The trustee^ presented viewpoints 
from those approaching that of "any- 
thing goes" to "fire and brimstone." 
Most, however, were moderates saying, 
"Let's make our changes one at a time." 
Again, the words of one of the board 
members were mentioned, "At least we 
have talked." All of the students present 
expressed agreement with this viewpoint. 
The meetings between the board mem- 
bers and student came at a time when 
words still spoke louder than deeds. 

Students attending Chapel to hear a faculty lecture. 


Days like the one I am presently ex- 
periencing make me feel old. Having taken 
the first of what promises to be many 
abortive tests in Religion 12, I dozed 
through math and, once sufficiently a- 
roused, walked over to L.V.C.'s fortress 
of religious dogma and trivia, the chapel, 
for the first of the Balmy Showers (or 
something like that) lectures. What rest 
math class didn't provide, the lecture 
did two-fold. As the lecturer, with the 
charisma of a cement block, rambled on 
in broken english about Christ and other 
nifty religious things, I sank into a deep 
dream of peace that must have rivaled 
that of Abu Ben-Adum. And lo, through 
the haze of my cranial fantasies, there 
appeared the true essence of recent 
American culture: a re-run of "The Ad- 
ventures of Ozzie and Harriet." 

Yes, I admit to having watched the 
Nelson family during my youth back in 
Lititz, Pennsylvania. I remember Wally 
Plumstead and the Malt Shop where Ozzie 
went to act like a typical college kid and 
drown his sorrows. I remember Harriet 
and Clara who were always going to the 
Emporium to do some shopping, usually 
for the calf-length dresses they wore 
around the house. And I remember the 
boys, David and Rickey. David was the 

clean-cut, neat type, and the image he 
projected never varied. He always im- 
pressed me as having just eaten a bowl of 
cream of wheat with raisins while suffer- 
ing from infectuous hepatitis. His ex- 
pression showed a constant struggle be- 
tween his rebellious system and the cream 
of wheat. I would wager that, once off 
camera, the cream of wheat won hands 

Rickey was a wierd specimen, though.

idol for millions of pre-Beatles adoles-

cents. His hair was always jelly-rolled 
fashionably, he always wore a set of 
tight, sequined pants, cowboy boots, and 
a bolero jacket. And, needless to say, he 
always ended the show playing at some- 
one's party with a cheap acoustic guritar 
complete with sequins and autograph 
slung around his neck, singing "Teen 
Angel" with his back-up band sounding 
like the string section of the Boston Pops 
orchestra, despite that they featured a 
mildly amplified electric guitar, a bass 
violin, and a set of drums that sounded 
like oatmeal cartons. The girls in the aud- 
ience would scream and Ozzie and Harriet 
would break in with a cheery "good- 
night, folks" and the sponsors would 
take the show from there. 

Another great show was "Leave It To 
Beaver." This was the one where the 
little kid with the buck teeth and the 
bangs (Beaver, or to the people of the 
profession, Jerry Mathers) got into all 
sorts of trouble, usually compounded by 
an older brother who tried for three suc- 
cessive seasons to grow a moustache be- 
fore succeeding (Wally, portrayed by 
Tony "Napalm" Dow); and was even- 
tually punished severely, usually to the 
extent of loss of milk and cookie privi- 
ledges for a week, by his parents (Ward 
and June Cleaver, the parts responsible 
for immortalizing Hugh Beaumont and 
Barbara Billingsly). The show continued 
like this for six years, simply by changing 
the miscues Beaver committed. The word 
"simplistic" cannot fully encompass the 
resulting programs. 

There were three bright spots on the 
show. One was Eddie Haskell, the image 
of reality amid the chaos and fantasy- 
Eddie was as endearingly human as any 
television character has ever been, P 01 " 
traying as he did the choir-boy image to 
the not totally unsuspecting Cleavers and 
the teen devil to Wally and Beaver. He 
was the one who prodded unsuspecting 
Wally to attach a chain to the rear axle 
of the souped-up '40 Ford of the shows 
second brightest spot, Lumpy Ruther- 
ford. Poor, dumb Lumpy didn't realize 
what had happened and went tooling o ut 
of his driveway, only to have the entire 
rear of his car fall out. That episode 
was a million laughs. , 
The third bright spot was Beaver s 
Uncle Billy. He succeeded in spoiling th e 
lad rotten with money, candy, and mov- 
ies at least once every ten episodes, all o 
which went to prove that rich uncles are 
really keen, but in the end the little k> d 
had to eat the brussels sprouts anyway- 
Morning television was even greater- 
I can remember getting my bi-weekly 
colds and sore throats so I could stay a 
home and watch "Space Patrol wit" 
Commander Cory and Cadet Happy ' 
and, of course, "Rocky Jones: Sp aCe 
Ranger." I always wanted to destroy 
the Gypsy Moons when I grew up. I stl 

But Rocky Jones and Command^ 
Cory and Beaver and Eddie and Lumpy 
and Rickey and Ozzie are gone. P et 
Pan had a good idea. 

Till later...

Hockey Team Ends Season 
With Almost Perfect Record 

by Pat Dougherty 

After the season was extended a 
week to play two of the three rained out 
games, the LV Varsity hockey team 
finished its season with a surprising vic- 
tory over Gettysburg and an over-all 
winning season of 10-1-1. 

The squaddost only to Elizabeditown, 
played Friday, November 6, on our 
homefield. Marcia Keefer scored the 
only goal, giving a final score of 3—1. 
Marcia scored her other goal against 

With a team total of 48 against an 
opponent total of 16, the average score 
was a 3-1 victory for Valley. Margie 
Wagner had one goal in the York game, 
Anita Meiser scored one apiece in the 
Kutztown and the Susquehanna games, 
and Chris Becker scored one each against 
Muhlenburg, Millersville, and Moravian. 
Jan Garber distributed her seven goals, 
as did Patty Kilgour with eleven and 
Barb Hall with 23 goals. 

In the Gettysburg games. Barb Hall 
and Jan Garber each scored once, tying 
the score at 2-2. With one and one-half 
minutes to play in the second half, Barb 
drove in her second goal, breaking the tie 
and giving the victory to the Lebanon 
Valley team. 

Although the Junior Varsity ended 
their season with a no-win record, their 
last two games were certainly their best. 
Debbie Steiner, during the first half of 
the E-town game, pushed in the only 
valid goal of the season. Losing only 
senior Carol Ferro, the J!V. team should 
have a winning season next year, with 
Janine Wolmer, Debbie Steiner, Shirley 
Fackler, Jill Greenstein, Lucy Immen, 
Pat Dougherty, Jeanne Irvine, Paula Man- 
die, Becky Certner, Judy Brandt, Rae 
Tanner, Janice Ganun, and Judy Haines 
all returning with this year's valuable 
experience and the Varsity record for 

On die 7th and 8th of November, the 
Varsity squad competed in the Central 
Penn tournament at Millersville State 
College. Playing as a team for their three 
games Saturday, they beat Lockhaven, 
Lockhaven alumni, and the Lancaster 
Club teams. Returning Sunday morning 

players were picked at random to form 
new teams, playing one game each. 
These teams exaggerated personal 
strengths and weaknesses, since the play- 
ers knew nothing about their team-

After defeating Denison University 
91-66 in the opening game, the Dutch- 
men brought home the trophy from the 
S. Woodrow Sponaugle Collegiate Tour- 
nament. The team won by an impressive 
score of 108-81 over Franklin & Mar- 
shall on Friday night and a 91-70 win 
over Juniata on Saturday. 

Donnie Johnson was voted the most 
valuable player of the Tournament. He 
scored 52 points and blocked 6 shots to 
bring his total for the first three games 
to 72 points, 11 blocked, and 43 re-

the Senate would never have run amuck 
if its advisor had only ventured to a few 
more meetings. 

But alas! The Senate was left on its 
own to face the students and their 
demands upon their representatives. 
With no constant advisor for "moral" 
support, could the Senate have been 
expected to withstand such a potent 
force as constituent opinion (or dele- 
gated powers, for that matter)? 

Where does this leave us? Having 
unsuccessfully tried "proper channels"
